Introduction to 'The Journey'
“Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
The journey is a key metaphor for our lives.
- Journey from self to the other.
- Journey from self to God.
In this twin-journey, we listen to God and listen to each other.
This year’s spiritual growth study is about a journey that intertwines stories from the Bible and stories from current and recent history.
- Journey from places of deep hurt and intense pain to forgiveness.
- Journey from the dark recesses of guilt to acknowledgement of offence and repentance toward restitution and restoration.
Let us strengthen our resolve to embark on this journey individually and collectively. Now is the moment to live up to the eternal call of God inviting us to be ambassadors of peace and agents of reconciliation.
