Forgiveness

New life

Lent is a time of repentance, a time to face up to our own sinfulness and inadequacy. We do this not to beat ourselves up or to feel bad, but because we know that God is longing to forgive us.

It is this trust in the forgiveness of God that allows to move forward. Jesus says ‘repent and believe the Good News’.

Repentance can be for our own personal sins, or it can be for our share in the sin of the world, such as the destruction of the environment. Trust in the forgiveness of God allows us to find healing and move forward step by step into a new future.
