As you sit quietly, become aware of your own breathing

(Pause for a few seconds)

After a while try to hold your breath for as long as you comfortably can.

(Pause for a few seconds)

Forgiveness is like spiritual breath.

When we stop receiving forgiveness we stop breathing in… …we begin to die spiritually.

When we stop offering forgiveness we stop breathing out… …we begin to die spiritually.

“Father forgive them” Jesus cried as they killed him.
The new life of the cross is a life of being forgiven and forgiving others.

Bring any guilt you carry. Offer it to God. And breathe in deeply.
Breathe in His forgiveness.

Who has wronged you?
Name them in your heart.
And breathe out. Release forgiveness.
