5. Grace and learning to forgive, learning to hope

This video is a collection of the four questions under this theme:

5.1 What is grace in terms of the Christian story?

5.2 If there is grace, where does forgiveness fit in?

5.3 Forgiveness can be very difficult. Are there times when forgiveness is not necessary or appropriate?

5.4 How does grace impact y/our lives day to day?

Here are some passages from Scripture to consider when you watch this…

Luke 19:1-10 - Zacchaeus and setting things right

Luke 15:11-32 – The forgiving parent

Luke 23:32-43 – Jesus forgives from the cross

Philemon  - Paul asks for forgiveness for a runaway slave

Romans 5:1-7 - “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”

There are so many more! Can you think of some?
