Christ: Our Model for Forgiveness

Ahe presentation below was given to the Orthodox Peace Fellowship [an endorsed organization  of the Assembly of Canonical  Orthodox Bishops of America] Annual Meeting, held in Madison, Wisconsin on September 16-18 2011. I have consistently written on forgiveness as central to the teachings and practice of Christ Himself and the necessity  of our emulation of this forgiveness to bring peace to those around us and achieve our own sanctification.

These articles supply the substantive content  and background to accompany this presentation. Parish priests catechists, and all of the Royal Priesthood of Christ by their Holy Baptism may find this PowerPoint presentation with the relevant articles useful in giving workshops or leading discussion groups on this critical issue that confronts committed Orthodox Christians in  today's non-Christian violent vengeance and retribution centered world.
