The sacred art of forgiveness, forgiving ourselves and others through God's grace, Marcia Ford - electronic bk

Tap into the power of the Divine. Learn how to forgive-and be forgiven. Everyone knows that forgiveness is a virtue and a key to emotional, spiritual and even physical well-being. But learning how to actually forgive-or to accept forgiveness, as the case may be-is a sacred art few of us have mastered. It doesn't have to be that way. Writing from personal experience and her broad knowledge of many faith traditions, Marcia Ford offers a new perspective on forgiveness and reconciliation, an approach rooted in the Spirit that can be learned by anyone no matter how deep the hurt. Through real-life examples, penetrating reflections, scriptural references and practical suggestions, Ford outlines the steps that one by one can help you to forgive, including: - Coming to terms with anger, bitterness and resentment - Understanding the differences between forgiveness and reconciliation - Taking the initiative, even when you're the one who's been wronged - Strategies for listening "with the heart" in emotionally charged situations - Knowing when to forgive and forget-and when to forgive and take action - Ways of allowing the power of the Divine to work through you - Finding compassion for others-and for yourself - ... and much more
