Our summer Precept Bible Study, Forgiveness: Breaking the Power of the Past, begin on Thursday, June 7, at 6:30pm. As imperfect people living in an imperfect world, we eventually confront in nearly every relationship the need to extend or receive forgiveness. But when the wounds run deep, forgiveness doesn't come easy. This study deals with the difficult questions of forgiveness, including: How can I forgive when the pain is so great? Does forgiving mean I have to forget the past? and What if I choose not to forgive? As you dig into what the Bible says on this vital topic, you'll encounter the depths of God's own mercy and discover how choosing forgiveness can free you from a painful past and propel you toward being all that God intends you to be. This no-homework, co-ed class meets weekly June 7 through July 19 in C218 in the ROC. The cost for the workbook will be $8. Space is limited, so please pre-enroll with Gary Treat at 816-778-1135 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
