many times must I forgive
Local Reconciliation ~ Global Peace
FR. VAZKEN MOVSESIAN
is founder and director of In His Shoes Ministries. He discusses the importance and significance of the "forgiveness formula: 7x77"
As a priest of the Armenian Church, Movsesian draws on the history and background of orthodox tradition to present a working model for peace. "Its not about religion," he says, "But about a complete surrender to the power of love."
In His Shoes was created in response to acts of Genocide perpetrated against the Armenian nation in 1915. Those who have suffered evil have a responsibility to take action against injustice to others, says the credo of the ministry. In His Shoes provides aid through rallies, information programs and fund raisers.
Forgiveness, therefore, is based on the concept of walking in the shoes of others... to feel and experience the pain of others, means responding to their pain with tolerance and forgiveness.
In a unique lecture/study, Fr. Vazken will present the principles of forgiveness, nestled in the formula 7x77.
