A sample question from one of our forgiveness assessments
Q. You tell an acquaintance about a job that you hope to be hired for. Without telling you the acquaintance applies and get the job for him/herself. What is the likelihood that you would choose to forgive your acquaintance?
Choose your answer:
1- Extremely Likely:---
2- Fairly Likely:-----
5- Not at a all likely:-----
What would be your response? How would you interact with this acquaintance going forward?
Do you know that a series of validated questions such as the one above can actually help to determine your level of forgiveness of self, others, situations, and your total forgiveness?
Give it a try and let me know how your responded to this question. Blessings
Here are a few reviews from Pastors
or other National Thought Leaders about our new book, " They Speak
from the Pain of Divorce: Lessons for African American Christians".
Hope these comments spark your interest and encourages you to purchase a copy.
“This book is a great resource for counselors, persons who are divorced, and couples considering divorce. I only wished it was available when I went through my divorce”.-Rev. Dr. Michael D. Stinson, M.Div., M.D., Senior Pastor, Bethel United Methodist Church, Atlanta, Georgia
"I strongly believe the research results shared in this book should be widely disseminated among African American clergy". -Pastor Emanuel Williams, Visitation Pastor/Chaplain, The Assemblies of God Tabernacle, Decatur, GA
“This book is like one of my favorites to date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I truly love it. It is definitely God inspired and I pray that every Pastor purchases a copy. It should be a must read for all considering remarriage”.- Rev. Dayna Spence, Chaplain, Author, West Chester, Philadelphia
“Forgiveness is one of the most important yet overlooked aspects of our mental, emotional, and spiritual health. As a Pastor for more than 30 years, I can tell you that some of the major problems that I encounter with families or individuals is the need to forgive another person. In every case, forgiveness is not just important it is essential for their healing. Dr. Magon Saunders has done a profound work in demonstrating both our need for forgiveness and its implications for health in general. While we in the emotional or spiritual arena have touched on forgiveness, we did not have the broader reach into the medical and social spheres that Dr. Saunders adds. This research and accompanying book is a game changer for me. Magon is not only a social scientist but she is a woman of faith that has dealt with all of the challenges of life and still has thrived. I am so blessed to call Magon a friend and now a mentor in the area of forgiveness, healing, and wellness”.-Rev. Michel J. Faulkner, President,The Institute for Leadership, Pastor, New Horizon Church, Harlem, New York
A RECENT LETTER
Congratulations on the publication of "They Speak From the Pain of Divorce". I appreciate you sending the review copy and enjoyed looking at it.
Your research is important, and I’m hopeful this work will help churches better minister to African-Americans who are experiencing the pain of divorce. For a long time, I’ve had a burden for placing DivorceCare in more African-American churches, and would welcome any ideas you have on how to achieve this goal.
