International Forgiveness Week, Part 2

22 September 2013 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet author, Deborah Candler, and the Rev Dr Keith Garner looks at the book of Acts. 

Deborah's story
Guest Deborah Candler was once consumed with her own negative pattern of living in a town she calls Stuckville. Her book Fascination with Forward is a testimony of why forgiveness matters. Bankrupt financially, emotionally and spiritually after family breakdown, Deborah Candler says forgiveness was her only way out. Deborah shares her journey with Wesley Mission CEO/Superintendent the Rev Dr Keith Garner. Shocked, confused and sorting through her true and false beliefs about God, Deborah began to discover how the organic act of forgiveness can shape life’s decisions and choices.

Wesley Mission story—Wesley Noreen Towers
At Wesley Mission we see how it can take just a couple of changes in circumstances for life to be turned upside down. Through Lellah’s story we see how homelessness can be only a few steps away for some families. We highlight Wesley Mission’s work in helping families in crisis through Wesley Noreen Towers in Sydney’s south west. This outstanding service transforms the lives of many families each year, providing much needed supported crisis accommodation.

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner leads this week’s sermon with a reading from Acts taking a closer look at lesser known bible characters. 

Guest performers
This week we welcome Australian band Sons or Korah, who are devoted to giving a fresh voice to the biblical psalms. With their unique acoustic, multi-ethnic sound, Sons of Korah have given this biblical songbook a dynamic and emotive new musical expression. We also hear from talented Australian singer/songwriter, Miriam Webster.
