Module 5: When We Hurt

This module begins by inviting sponsors to consider times when they have been hurt by another and to consider how easy or hard it can be to forgive. They hear several powerful stories of forgiveness and then consider the question, “Could I forgive like this?” They also explore the ways in which they and their peers fall short of acting with love and mercy in their ordinary, daily life. Considering the reality of sin in this light, sponsors are invited to explore what a response of love looks like—forgiving unconditionally, as God does—in order to see that love restores brokenness, hurt, sorrow, and sinful action.

Bishop Frank invites them, along with their young person, to consider practical things they can do in this moment to heal the hurt of someone they know.
