Spiritual Preparation

Forgiveness rituals are prominent in many faith traditions. How have you engaged in forgiveness within a Unitarian Universalist context? Think back to recent sermons you may have heard in your congregation. Do you hear words of forgiveness in these sermons? Embodied forgiveness can be transformative. If you were to design a forgiveness ritual what would you include? Writing some of these ideas down may be helpful for you as a religious educator. Do you have any favorite readings on forgiveness? Are there times when it is important not to forgive someone? Think of an example of a time when forgiveness had an impact on your life. What happened? Asking these questions offers you a chance to reflect on your own approach to forgiveness.
