    Radical Forgiveness

    Radical Forgiveness

    Jesus radically forgave his enemies and did it in a ‘quiet’ way. When we are hurried, and have overbooked our schedule, we are more likely to become annoyed or angry and less likely to be forgiving. Remember Jesus’ example of how he forgave Peter for denying him, or those who nailed him to the cross. THAT’S Radical Forgiveness!

    I’ve Been Thinking…

    I’ve Been Thinking…

    Americans have lost civility and have become contemptuous. Donna wants to know your opinion about the ‘things she’s been thinking about’ such as politics, the impeachment proceedings, the State of the Union address, the way we talk to one another, etc. How is this all seeping into your life? In the end, we each need to take responsibility for our actions and we are commanded to love our enemies.

    Elisabeth Elliot’s Take on Forgiveness

    Elisabeth Elliot’s Take on Forgiveness

    Elisabeth Elliot’s wise counsel on forgiveness comes from her experience of forgiving the people who murdered her husband and 4 of his colleagues in Ecuador. She said, “Forgiveness is a gift of grace,” and she remarkably extended that grace when she chose to forgive. She went back to Ecuador and continued to work among the same people who had taken her husband’s life. You could say she was an expert in forgiveness!

If you have been sinned against or offended, how are you going to go about reconciling with another? Donna has wonderful suggestions on ways to restore relationships.

A mixed bag

Donna has written some good books on discipleship, but the teaching on the podcast is a mixed bag including psychology, mysticism and extra Biblical experience. The opening welcoming prayer promotes self acceptance without the need for growth or change. I also had a concern on her promoting ecumenical acceptance regardless of pure Biblical doctrine.
