Character Council of Hancock County meets the third Wednesday at Ninestar. Meetings start at 7:00 AM. I know it is early but worth it.  Today’s meeting we talked about forgiveness.  Here are the notes:

Forgiveness vs. Rejection

Clearing the record of those who have wronged me and not holding a grudge. Releasing feelings of resentment. Renunciation of anger.

Forgiveness is not an emotion but a matter of the will. Corrie Ten Boom

  1. Let go of anger
    1. Define the offense
  2. Talk about it
    1. Resolve misunderstandings
  3. Heal the wounds
    1. Cleaned, rejoined, nourished, protected
  4. Invest in others
    1. Relationships thrive when the innocent are merciful, not when the guilty are punished
  5. Move on
