Join us right here, live every Sunday at 9 AM, 11 AM, and 7 PM. Our livestream will start a few minutes before each live session.
You may have a better experience by viewing directly on our YouTube channel: www.YouTube.com/FloodSanDiego
There, you can engage with your fellow Floodsters in the comments, and sometimes the stream is a bit more stable.
Lastly, “social distancing” does not mean relational distancing! Say hi, let us know how you’re doing, let us know how we’re doing, or send any questions to [email protected].
Matthew 6:12, 14-15
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
How do we experience the freedom of Forgiveness?
A forgiven life is a forgiving life.
1. ASK FOR THE GRACE TO SEE YOURSELF HONESTLY.
And forgive us our debts, . . .
2. TRUST THE STORY OF JESUS.
13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
– Forgiveness does not mean forgetting what someone has done.
– Forgiveness does not mean there are no consequences to what others have done.
– Forgiveness does not mean you take responsibility for actions that have been done to you.
– Forgiveness does not always mean reconciliation.
3. REMEMBER FORGIVENESS IS A JOURNEY.
… as we also have forgiven our debtors.

Ways to Learn and Grow
We know that many of you are seeking ways to listen, learn and grow in this season. As a church community, we believe the gospel is good news that tears down walls and builds bridges. Our faith in Jesus leads us to intentionally build bridges across ethnic, cultural, economic, and gender barriers. There is more work to do, and we have not arrived, but as disciples of Jesus we have and will continue to learn and work against any and all forms of racism, racial injustice and violence, in Jesus’ name. Click HERE for a list of resources and ways you can grow and
learn with us.

We have created a webpage with resources on how to understand and reduce anxiety. Find those workshops, podcasts, and more at DIVEintoFLOOD.com/Anxiety
