When we don’t forgive, it can hurt us. At 6:07 p.m. Sunday evening, during Contemporary Worship at Trinity on the Hill Espiscopal Church, Father Colin Kelly will begin a three-session teaching series about forgiveness and the healing impact it can have in our lives.
Grudges, hurt feelings and thoughts of vengeance, when nurtured over a long period of time, can lead to serious health problems. Mayoclinic.com mentions some of these health problems: stress, higher blood pressure, depression, anxiety or hostility, substance abuse, even chronic pain.
Mayo Clinic Chaplain Katherine Piderman, PhD said, “If you allow negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, your may find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice.”
This wisdom goes for those who find it hard to forgive themselves, as well as those unable to forgive someone else.
Kelly will speak to the challenge and the necessity of forgiveness in life. The teaching series will begin Sunday with, “The Cost of Holding a Grudge,” and will continue Feb. 27 with “Forgiveness — Who Needs It?” The series will conclude on March 13 with, “If Jesus Can Forgive, Why Can’t I?”
