Sunday Service – November 26, 2017 – 10:30 am – Sam Gugino – Forgiveness


Nelson Mandela had many commendable qualities, not least was the courage to maintain his principles despite 27 years in prison. But his most admirable quality was his ability to forgive. Instead of retribution, he chose forgiveness. And in doing so, South Africa changed from the brutality of apartheid to the freedom of democracy, without a civil war. How can we learn from Mandela’s example, that forgiveness is strength, not weakness? And that forgiveness heals the forgiver as well as the forgiven.

On Sunday, November 26, 2017 at Schuylkill Unitarian Universalists, Sam Gugino will read Forgiving and Reconciling” By Everett Worthington as well as deliver a sermon entitled “Forgiveness”.
