LA CRESCENTA ? Two dozen visitors gathered Sunday at the Center for Spiritual Living to hear about the power of forgiveness and the potential it could have for changing lives. Harry Morgan Moses, author of ?It?s So Easy When You Know How? and head of the SpiritWorks Center for Spiritual Living in Burbank, led the workshop on forgiveness, explaining that reconciling negative feelings through love and understanding could help attendees live more fulfilling lives. He said allowing oneself to forgive could lead to real emotional and physical improvements because of pent-up negative energy within the body that can create problems without an opportunity for release.

Leticia Aguirre and Ben Kayumba, strangers to each other whose native countries of Mexico and Rwanda are separated by an ocean and a world of cultural differences, share a tragic bond — both know how it feels to lose a family member to murder. Aguirre, a longtime Glendale resident, lost her son Raul Aguirre on May 5, 2000, when he tried to break-up a gang-related scuffle outside Hoover High School. Raul, who was not in a gang, got caught in the mix and a knife meant for another boy ended up in the 17-year-old's heart.

For one local ministry, Saturday marks the "World Day of Forgiveness," a day dedicated to local reconciliation and global peace. Saturday is July 7, 2007, or 7-7-7, which holds meaning in Christian religious symbology. And Father Vazken Movsesian, executive director of Glendale-based In His Shoes Ministries, has taken it upon himself to dedicate the day to forgiveness, a concept he believes is much needed in the world. In the Bible, when asked how often a person should forgive, Jesus Christ said to forgive seven times 77 times — a reference to the number 777. "[Movsesian]

tomorrow "Humanity is never so beautiful as when praying for forgiveness or else forgiving another." -- Jean Paul Richter Last week, I attended a leadership conference. For two and a half days, I sang, prayed, took notes, laughed, cried and took more notes at a conference designed to motivate us to develop leadership qualities in whatever roles God has called us to fulfill. It was my first experience with video broadcasting, and though originally skeptical, I now believe in the potential of positive technology to connect people across many miles.

Bob Harks’ letter (“Some people should learn to forgive,” May 1) presents a deeply flawed view of forgiveness and remembrance of nationally sponsored atrocities aimed at minorities. He asserts that Armenians, as Christians, are hypocrites by failing to forgive the Turks for the genocide and thereby not following the teachings of Christ; and further, that that failure shows no love of “one’s fellow man or this country.” I would ask him, and everyone who shares his view, to read the words of Jesus in the book of Luke: “If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.” Throughout the Bible we are exhorted to call out and stand against, to rebuke, injustice.

In the April 24 issue of Community Forum, Viken S. Mouradian made several points among which was a reference to assimilating all groups (or individuals) into a totally uniform society. I agree we should all work together for the benefit and good of the entire community. Very definitely we should maintain all our cultures: Italian, Jewish, Armenian, Hispanic, and so on. By developing respect and understanding of other cultures (as well as our own)

“As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:13. I am curious about how many of us live in a polarity of this verse. What I am suggesting is that some of us are guilt-driven (unable to forgive ourselves long after God has forgiven us), and some use this verse to receive quick forgiveness: saying a prayer, accepting the forgiveness, only to use it again when the desire to step out of God’s will becomes another temptation. Let’s look at the first.

I was at the prom the year Berlyn Cosman was shot and killed (“Man convicted of killing CV student on prom night granted parole,” Oct. 22). I was a recent Crescenta Valley High School graduate on a date with a then-current student (though not at the party). I had followed Berlyn's basketball career in the Glendale News-Press. I was coincidentally walking by Paul Crowder's house the day after the shooting, at the exact same time he was arrested after fleeing to his home. I went to Berlyn's funeral later that week in Montrose.

What does it exactly mean to forgive? It is for the other person? Us? God? The Bible does tell us to forgive and likens it to the way God forgave us through Christ's sacrifice. "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32). Some people have been extremely injured in life. They may be stuck and unable to move on. When this happens, some seemingly caring Christian may tell them they need to forgive and move on, that lack of forgiviness is a sin. But what if someone is traumatized, wronged, or just plain hurt by another person they have forgiven, and they can't move on emotionally?

Infidelity is in the news with the recent development of Jenny Sanford — wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford — filing for divorce after 20 years of marriage. The world’s No. 1 golfer, Tiger Woods, also admitted to infidelity. It’s not new in the celebrity world, but what does your faith teach about infidelity? Are we truly damned if we cheat on our wives or husbands?   “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” of course, is one of the Ten Commandments; and in Jewish law was punishable by death.

Do you ever consider that Paul, whom the Holy Spirit used to write a majority of the New Testament, was actually persecuting Jesus before he was called to serve him? I have heard people say that they are not worthy to serve Jesus, that if I knew what they had done, I would be disgusted. I often tell people in my therapy office that I have probably heard it before or it is within the realm of what I have heard before ? and that I will never look at them in a way that brings shame.

Some people should learn to forgive I find it disturbing that your paper devotes so much space and newsprint to this “Armenian Genocide” issue — and the three-quarter front page coverage on April 25, complete with a large photo featuring Armenian clerics in it, and a questionable column by an Armenian journalist was really “over the top.” It has always been my understanding that the Armenian religion was...

GLENDALE — The city’s largest homeless services provider is poised for a $54,724 cash infusion from the county to help cover operating costs and expand its transitional housing program. The county Board of Supervisors is expected to approve the funding Tuesday for PATH Achieve Glendale, which completed a $400,000 private fundraising drive earlier this month. About a quarter of that came in the form of debt forgiveness from parent organization PATH Partners, with the rest earmarked for operating costs that administrators said are never fully reimbursed by the government.
