Forgiveness sets you free

September 9th, 2020

Rev. Carla Pratt Keyes, Pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches a sermon from Matthew 18:21-35. She begins, “A while back my congregation acted out today’s parable from Matthew – at a mid-week supper, or something; we were on the stage in our Fellowship Hall. Since it’s always easiest to assign big parts to people close at hand, I was the king, and our music director, Doug, owed me a zillion dollars…”

Sometimes a zillion dollars would be easier to forgive than the pain others cause us. How do we forgive that? How do we forgive them? Carla has some suggestions.

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes or for individual use.
