The Healing Journey Retreat will be held on Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p. m.
Forgiveness is a commitment to a process of change. It can be difficult and it can take time. Everyone moves toward forgiveness a little differently. The desire to forgive is more about how it can change your life by bringing you more peace; emotional and spiritual healing. Forgiveness is not about excusing or condoning the pain inflicted on you. It is about letting go of that pain so that you can heal. This day is designed to bring you to a deeper understanding of forgiveness and to experience God’s healing power. Presenter is Beverly Collin, assistant director at Cedarbrake along with The Mercy of God Prayer Team will present.
The cost is $40 and includes lunch.
