Curated Resources on Faith & Forgiveness

Often we, like the apostle Peter, try to pin down exactly how many times we are bound to forgive the same person for sinning against us. Seven times? Jesus extravagantly declares “seventy-seven times!” (Matthew 18:22). Of course it is more than a math problem. With the theme of “Faith & Forgiveness” we are exploring how God’s extravagant capacity for grace and forgiveness can infiltrate the life of the church and our relationships, without destroying healthy boundaries.
