Forgiveness 101: Foundations

Is this true of you? You know that Christ died for your sins . . . but are you living like you believe that? As you help people grow in their faith, can you adequately teach them about forgiveness? Sadly, too many Great Commission workers can’t. Don’t let that be true of you. In this workshop Shonna will equip you to answer three key questions about forgiveness.


Forgiveness 101: Foundations

Explaining what forgiveness is seems a given for all cross-cultural workers. But it’s not. Whether you have been a Christian for all of your life or only for a few years, too many cross-cultural workers have ideas of forgiveness that are not completely rooted in what God says about forgiveness.

Do any of these sound familiar?

You’ve heard you should forgive and forget.

Growing up you were told, “Tell your brother you’re sorry.” Or “Tell your sister you forgive her.”

You want to share with supporters about your work and they want to know if you see elephants every day.

Your teammate threw a glass at you and your organization said that since it didn’t hit you, you need to forgive your teammate.

If you answered yes to any of them, this workshop is for you!

You know that Christ died for your sins . . . but are you living like you believe that? As you help people grow in their faith, can you adequately teach them about forgiveness? In this workshop Shonna will lay the foundations for this three-part series by addressing:

—Why we need to talk about forgiveness. (Hint: We will look at why forgiveness is complicated and the role culture plays)

—What is Biblical forgiveness?

—The 3 levels of forgiveness. (Do you know the difference between exoneration, forbearance, and release?)

You may have been a Christian for decades and understand forgiveness, but sometimes it’s good to return to the basics. This workshop does just that.

They are videos that tend to run between 45 and 55 minutes. We want you to get your money’s worth without being overloaded.

What is the “notes” feature
I don’t know about you, but I have notes written in this notebook, or on that piece of paper, or on a handout . . . that I either I can’t find, or forget about. We want you to be able to have all of your notes in one place that you can easily access. Every workshop will have a “notes” button below the video, click on it and a notebook will open up on the right-hand side. You may take notes as you listen to the workshop. When you are finished, click save” and your notes will be saved in the “Notes” section of your My Trellis. You may also print or download your notes. At any time you can edit, add to, or delete from your notes. We have formatted your notes so that when you download them they look nice and you shouldn’t need to reformat.

The month that a workshop goes live, it is available for $9.99. After the initial month, the workshop will still be available for $19.

Who can participate?

While the Workshop is crafted especially for people who are serving overseas or plan to serve overseas, many of the workshops will offer something to anyone with an interest in Christian cross-cultural work. If you purchase a workshop, it is intended for you and one other (a spouse if married, or teammate if single). Many workshops will be beneficial for a team to watch and discuss together.

Do you have closed captioning or subtitles?
At this point, no we do not. The workshops are presented in English.
What if I am a more sensitive area of the world?
We are aware of your sensitivities! I have asked presenters not to use the “m” word and instead talk about cross-cultural work, global workers, and our line of work. You, however, know your context and if these guidelines are enough for you.
