Forgiving Ourselves

Anger and shame have the power to consume our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God. There is freedom that comes with forgiving - even if the person we need to forgive is ourselves. This sermon looks at David's Psalm 139:1-18, as we continue to explore the challenges and gifts that come with learning to forgive and ask forgiveness.
