Forgiveness and Reconciliation

Forgiveness and Reconciliation offers spiritual guidance for individuals and small communities who desire to live more intentionally in the reconciling love of God.

Forgiving and being forgiven bring the great liberation of reconciliation—forgiveness being an inside job, reconciliation involving interaction.
As we read the insightful wisdom of Jean Marie Hiesberger and the many inspiring stories of forgiveness and reconciliation she recalls, we understand more profoundly people's desire to be forgiven and the steps we may want to take to live reconciled lives. In making the connection between the healing power of God and forgiveness, the author helps us see the richness of the sacraments of reconciliation and discover again how to live in the freedom of God.

The book offers six sessions:

Session 1: "The call to forgive"
Session 2: "Jesus: teacher and healer"
Session 3: "Reconciliation: hastening the reign of God"
Session 4: "A light on the mountain: witness of the Church community"
Session 5: "Seeking forgiveness: being strengthened to forgive"
Session 6: "The Sacrament of Reconciliation"

Jean Marie Hiesberger was a writer, speaker, and consultant on spirituality, religious education, and parish ministry. She was a contributing author to RENEW's PrayerTime: Faith-Sharing Reflections on the Sunday Gospels series.
