Mercy and Forgiveness Workshop at Manna House of Prayer

Manna House of Prayer in Concordia, KS will be offering the workshop Mercy and Forgiveness with Father Barry Brinkman from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3.

One of the biggest obstacles to attaining peace is resentment. Even those who seem to have almost everything they need to be happy are sometimes miserable because of a host of resentments that embitter their lives. We see how widespread this problem is when we witness the critical tone of many conversations, the anger, the divisions between people, marital partners, and the eagerness in society for vengeance.

Jesus provides a remedy for this darkness that plagues our society and relationships. The remedy is forgiveness. Jesus’ whole life was about modeling for us what forgiveness entails.

This gathering will discuss the power forgiveness can unleash in a person’s life. It will provide participants greater clarity on what forgiveness is and what it is not. We will review the Biblical foundations for forgiveness and its relationship with mercy. Practical guidance will also be provided on how to begin the process of forgiving those who have hurt us.

Free will offering. Masks and social distancing will be in effect. To register or for more information call: 785-243-4428 or email: retreatcenter@mannahouse.org.  Preregistration required.
