Forgiveness and reconciliation get a lot of press lately. Unfortunately, forgiveness 

and reconciliation often remain 1) Misunderstood due to misguided popular 

conceptions as to what forgiveness actually accomplishes; 2) Isolated from the 

biblical framework of the reconciling work of God in Christ; 3) Confused with other 

important ideas such as “loving one’s enemy” or “letting go of the offense.”  

This seminar will help to clear obstacles to reconciliation first by critiquing popular, 

yet inadequate, models of forgiveness. Second, it will define forgiveness within the 

larger framework of the biblical teaching about Christian fellowship and 

reconciliation. A practical visual model of the “cycle of reconciliation” will also help 

participants intentionally to begin to move toward forgiveness and reconciliation.
