February 2020 – Sandy Clark
The evening started with a good time of worship and praise. Sandy then spoke about reconciliation and forgiveness, using as a reference the short time that she spent in Rwanda meeting both Hutu and Tutsi people. We need to forgive, but this is difficult.
Matt 19:26 – With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible
Matt 18:21-22 – forgive 77 times (i.e.always)
Luke 23:33-34 – Jesus forgives those who killed him.
Sandy also pointed out that forgiveness and reconciliation are different things. Forgiveness only needs you and God, whereas reconciliation needs both parties to be part of it.
The evening finished with an intimate time of worship and reflection, with people praying with each other and letting God speak with them.
