What to Do When Someone Hurts Us

Lessons on Forgiveness & Reconciliation from the Book of Philemon

Time:  9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

As Christians, we all experience hurt and broken relationships. We sin against other people and they sin against us, and we often carry anger and bitterness in our hearts. We know we ought to forgive, but forgiveness is not easy to do.


In this class, we will use Paul's instructions to Philemon and Onesimus in the midst of their conflict as a model for Christian forgiveness and reconciliation. We will first develop foundational theological principles from the books of Colossians and Philemon. We will then engage with relevant questions for our lives, such as: What does it mean to forgive? How can we learn to forgive when we are bitter? How do we reconcile broken relationships? Are there times when we should not forgive or reconcile?


9 AM - 12 PM: Principles from Colossians and Philemon

12 PM - 1 PM: Lunch (not provided)
