Join us at Virtual Vespers at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 3rd, to learn more!

 

Surrender is a liberating part of the Christian practice of forgiveness. It means to give up one’s will to the greater Divine Love of God.

 

Most of us are uncomfortable with relinquishing the illusion of control over our lives because the word is often used in reference to war.

 

Who wants to lose one's self determination or become a prisoner?

 

True surrender to God’s love results in ultimate freedom, but it’s difficult for our human egos to grasp this.
