Members of a local church gather for Forgiveness Sunday
JACKSON, Tenn. – Today was forgiveness Sunday at a local church.
The St. Nicholas Orthodox Christian church on Old Humboldt Road held a service in which they practiced the act of forgiveness within the community of the church.
“As Christians we are doing this as we are receiving that love we are thankful for that love that we share that live with the world around us with the people that we know and the people we come in contact with and like I said in the world we think that forgiveness is the first and foremost thing that love can manifest itself,” said Father Matthew Snowden.
Snowden says next week is the first of lent and Christians will begin the act of fasting.
