Bulletin for February 21, 2021

The way forgiveness is presented in these two clips from the movie “The Shack” are quite helpful.  If you are unfamiliar with the story, the Native American man is God and Mackenzie is struggling with his outrage and hatred for the man who murdered his child. It is a good respectful treatment of our call to forgive what seems impossible.  The middle of both clips cover the same section of the movie but clip 1 includes some helpful extras at the beginning and clip 2 has some at the end.
