Forgiveness Day

Forgiveness Day – Yes there are two holidays on forgiving. Yet, we shouldn’t need a holiday to forgive. #ForgivenessDay #Forgiveness



Forgiveness Day

Global Forgiveness Day is held on July 7 and founded by CECA (Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors) in 1994.

While, International Forgiveness Day is on the first Sunday of August and was founded by the World Forgiveness Alliance (WFA). Year unknown.

Forgiveness Day

Both days as a reminder for people to forgive. Forgiveness is very important. Main reason is Christ said we must forgive or we won’t be forgiven! (Matthew 6:15). I actually go in more depth in the Forgiveness blog post.

Everyday should be Forgiveness Day! We are never promised tomorrow or even the next moment.

Forgiveness Sunday is usually the Sunday before Lent.

WFA Mission Statement

The Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-deductible organization whose mission is to evoke the healing spirit of Forgiveness worldwide. We declare that “Forgiveness Is the Greatest Healer of Them All” and that “Without Forgiveness There Is No Future”

Forgiveness

“Forgiveness offers the possibility of two types of peace: peace of mind — the potential healing of old emotional wounds, and peace with others — the possibility of new, more gratifying relationships in the future.”

Kenneth I. Pargament & Mark S. Rye
