“Family Doesn’t Mean Forgiveness”

ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon, spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.

Advice columns are filled with articles about individuals asking for help because family members are pressuring them to forgive parents who were abusive.  In this Sunday’s message, Linda Ochi will talk about growing up with an abusive parent, how being family doesn’t equate to forgiveness, and offer words of support to other survivors of child abuse.

Rev. Linda Ochi, preaching, with music from Andrez Alcazar and Kim Angelo.  A supportive sharing circle will take place after the service.
