A Vision for Forgiveness

We have sufficient forgiveness methods right now to transform our lives to ones of love, peace and joy.

  • We will promote forgiveness sufficiently so that people will not doubt the power of forgiving.
  • We will choose to be happy instead of being right.
  • We will chose to be loving in relationships for we know that is more rewarding than being resentful.
  • We will recognize that we are the first to be healed by forgiving. We never know how it will affect someone else.
  • We will understand that without forgiveness first, there is no true reconciliation.
  • We will teach our children how to forgive and to grow up willing to forgive so that they will have happier lives with much less conflict.
  • Our hearts will allow differences with other people without blame for those differences.

  • Individual and couples counseling will use the many methods of forgiving to help people to let go of their upsets with themselves and others.
  • Schools will expect social proficiency through teaching communication skills, forgiveness, and conflict and anger management so that students’ minds will be open to creative win-win solutions to a conflict.
  • Clergy will not only preach that forgiving is important but will teach people how to do it. They will put on forgiveness intensives and work­shops to enable their congregants to clear their minds and hearts in order to live deeper spiritual lives – experiencing God.
  • Conflict Resolution programs throughout the world will use forgiveness regularly because there is no true conflict resolution without the movement of heart that forgiveness brings. Plus, forgiveness brings the capacity to hear what the other person is really saying or wanting.
