Hope House Christian Counseling Center Will Host Forgiveness Series

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1

Rev. Dr. JoAnn Nickleberry
In your own personal life, do you have a tendency to genuinely forgive from the heart or do you allow yourself to hold onto a grudge? Looking back on past experiences, have your reactions affected you positively or negatively? Do not allow others wrongdoings to take you captive and burden your heart! It is important to understand that when we are unable to forgive others, we are living in bondage to the one we are unable to forgive.

“To not forgive, to hold on to a grudge, to hold on to a spirit of unforgiveness is like taking poison and expecting it to kill the other person.”

Hope House Christian Center and will begin its Fresh Start Recover Series by hosting a 6-week series focused on Forgiveness. Titled Forgiveness: Getting Beyond Your Past, the Rev. Dr. JoAnn Nickleberry will help participants address major issues and hurdles in forgiveness, while assisting them in dealing with the pain of hurt.
