"Women of Spirit," a group that provides programs to support women's spirituality in the Winona area, is collaborating with Winona Health to offer an evening program on forgiveness on Friday, March 10. The program is scheduled from 6:45-8:30 pm at Central United Methodist Church, 114 West Broadway, and costs $10.
On Friday, March 10, Dr. John Williams, PhD, will present "The Paradoxes of Forgiveness: Building Bridges across the Fault Lines of Our Lives." Williams, a licensed marriage and family therapist, will address the meaning of forgiveness and its connections to healing and reconciliation. According to Williams, "The weaving of forgiveness takes different directions, whether it is asking forgiveness of another, forgiving oneself, or forgiving someone else. In each of these, do the tasks vary? There are interweaves between deep emotions, healing, repairing trust, and forgiveness that underscore the delicate or difficult challenge we face in building bridges across the fault lines of our lives." This program on forgiveness is open to both women and men and the registration deadline is March 8.
Registration brochures are available at the Winona Public Library, the Community Memorial Hospital reception desk, the Women's Resource Center front desk, and all entrances at St. Mary's Church.
