MetadataShow full item record
This project sought to develop a forgiveness seminar for members of Open Door Community Church in Shingletown, California. Chapter 1 presents the history and ministry context of Open Door Community Church and goals of this project. Chapter 2 utilizes four key passages from the synoptic gospels (Matt 6:14-15; Mark 11:25; Luke 17:3; Matt 18:15-17) to demonstrate a theological foundation for attitudinal forgiveness. Chapter 3 explains common hindrances to attitudinal forgiveness: forgiving God, forgetting the sins of others, and forgiving self. Chapter 4 describes the project itself, recounting the content and teaching methodology of the specific course curriculum. Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project based on completion of certain goals. This project sought to develop Christians with a knowledge of attitudinal forgiveness so that they would desire to live out the teaching of Jesus in the midst of their interpersonal relationships within the discipleship community of saints, sinners, and sufferers.
