This evening we were very grateful to Helen Cook who did everything! Thank you Helen! Not only did she play the piano and lead our sung worship, she also lead creative prayers and delivered the talk.
The theme this evening was forgiveness and Helen shared her thoughts and reflections from the Bible on the forgiveness that Jesus offered those who crucified him, the forgiveness Jesus offers us now and the obligation on us to forgive others.
Helen stressed the importance of starting off with the little things, of trying to forgive people for the things that aren’t so important to us. As we start to practice forgiveness we will become more able to forgive other people for the bigger more hurtful things. Helen shared examples from her own experiences.
We were given the opportunity to ask God for forgiveness and really enjoyed the hand printing creative prayers.
