Synopsis: The Way of Forgiveness. Forgiveness is such a critical part of the Christian life, and yet many of us misunderstand not only the nature of forgiveness, but especially the outworking of it in relationship to one another. In this message, Pastor Mark will help you to see the doctrine of forgiveness in a new light and give you strong practical applications which can powerfully change your life. Romans 12:18
