Forgiveness: An Interfaith Approach to Opening the Heart

Monday Eves., April 9, 23, and 30 6:30 ~ 8:00 PM at KCC

Forgiveness is central to the teachings of Jesus.  But there aren’t many details in the scriptures about how to forgive. Learning to forgive ourselves and others, releasing the suffering, and softening the grudges can open our hearts to greater experiences of love and freedom, but how can we do that in a healthy way?
Led by Louise Jacobus, on these three evenings we will discuss:

  • The many benefits to forgiveness, but also many important questions
  • How forgiveness is embedded in the spiritual traditions of the world and what can we learn from other traditions

Serve as a Sunday Greeter

If you are able to smile, shake hands and say hello, you are the perfect candidate to be a Sunday morning greeter for the 10:00 service. Duties include coming about 20 minutes early, greeting everyone, and telling visitors that there are Visitor Information Cards in the pews. If someone needs other information, such as where child care is, the greeter can tell them, or ask an usher to help them. That’s all there is to it. So if you would like to do this, please sign up on the sheet in Lander Hall.

 

Serve in Other Ways

Serve as a liturgist. Bring refreshments or prepare communion. Wash linens or press play to launch multimedia. Want to sing or play an instrument in worship, even if you can’t commit to the Chancel Choir?

Deepen your connection to our church family, serving on one of our ministry committees. Chat with us about getting involved at info@kensingtonucc.com.

 

Be Family to Each Other

The family we create among our church friends is precious. Foster it in smaller and interest based groups: Secret Sisters, Women’s Spirituality, Circle Group, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Chancel Choir, Youth Group, Camp Stevens Retreats, and more. Contact us to learn more these groups. Or suggest a new idea for a small group! We are at info@kensingtonucc.com.
