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.
About the Guest: Bruce Van Blair Bruce's interests keep him going in several different directions including the start up of a new house church (now streamed live from our Countryside Chapel), and most recently joining the Countryside community to begin our new ministry "Converging Paths;" a partnership venture with the BTS Center in Bangor Maine, exploring our vocational callings in our everyday workplaces, and our leadership in faith communities. Bruce has written a wide collection of sermons as well as several books, including The Believer's Road, and In A Nutshell.
