Darkwood Brew: Forgiveness, Part 1: By Whose Authority?

July 09, 2014

Should you forgive and forget? Is anything unforgivable? Are there times when you shouldn't forgive?

Darkwood Brew Executive Director Rev. Eric Elnes, Ph.D., and popular series guest Rev. Bruce Van Blair are front and center for a provocative and surprising examination of the Christian concept of forgiveness. This four-part systematic study asks where the authority to forgive comes from; when is forgiveness required; and whether or not forgiveness might be optional. Spoiler alert: It's not. Finally, they will explore the process of forgiveness and what that means in our lives.

Part 1: By Whose Authority?

Bruce has written a wide collection of sermons as well as several books, including The Believer's Road, and In A Nutshell.
