Simone Stephenson's shared her reflections on forgiveness following the first two weeks of our Lenten series, Dying to Live:
Forgiveness means to me that if someone or you do something mean, you should say sorry. You don't have to say sorry to forgive someone. Some people say its ok but, it really is not ok. Instead, you should say I forgive you. Forgiving someone means to agree that what they did was wrong and they will try not to do it again. If you were friends (which you should be), you are also agreeing to become friends again. The I'm sorry part means that the person will try to get your friendship back or want to be friends and also try not to ever do the thing again. They did know or now know the thing they did was wrong. Whenever I say sorry, its usually an accident. An accident is when you hurt some ones feelings but didn't mean to do it. This is what forgiveness means to me.
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
