Watch It Again...
Back To Basics: Forgiveness

We don't forgive other people necessarily because they deserve it. We do so because we deserve to be free from the bondage that a grudge brings into our lives. Watch last Sunday's message again here, or share it with a loved one who needs to be reminded of the freedom that forgiveness offers us.
