Focus on Forgiveness: Exploring the what and how of forgiveness especially in the light of life’s big issues with Dr Phil Halstead (Focus Webinar Series 2020)

Most of us have wronged others and longed to be forgiven. Most of us have suffered deep wrongdoing and struggled to forgive. Clearly, there is a pressing need to become more skilled in the art of forgiveness. But are we? Do we know the potential benefits of authentic forgiveness and the perils of pseudo forgiveness and how to work through barriers to forgiveness especially when it really hurts? Do join us on this Webinar where all of these questions and more will be addressed. 

Dr Phil Halstead lectures in Applied Theology at Carey with a focus on pastoral care, pastoral counselling, inner healing, and integrative theology. He also heads up the pastoral care department at St Augustine’s Church, Auckland. He received his PhD in Theology from the University of Auckland in 2009 and his research focused on designing and running a series of forgiveness courses that helped adults to explore their relationships with their parents. He has published widely in the areas of forgiveness, pastoral care and counselling, and mental health.


This webinar series provides a stimulating training resource for church leaders, practitioners, and volunteers. Each month a new focus illuminates topics from theology, Bible, pastoral care, mission, youth, history, and culture. The content is provided by high calibre academic researchers and practitioners of Carey’s faculty and other experts in thier field.

Each webinar is an hour long, containing 40 minutes of content, with live Q&A. These are recorded with ongoing access available online. Watch on your own, or together as a leadership team, or create a group to join together for this 8-month series. One reading (a book chapter or article) is included after each webinar to go a little deeper.
