As We Forgive – Laura Waters Hinson on SBE
Erik Guzman October 2nd, 2009
Imagine if a murderer was released from prison to live in your neighborhood. Imagine that this person was not only a killer, but the man who murdered your family. Now imagine forgiving that man and peacefully living in the house he built for you. That's one of the true stories documented in the award-winning film, As We Forgive.
Join Laura Waters Hinson and Steve Brown on this week's SBE as they talk about radical reconciliation in Rwanda. Laura is the producer/director of As We Forgive and she's currently engaged in a nationwide screening tour, presenting the film to the U.S. Congress, the State Department and the World Bank, and at various universities and institutions.
You can join Laura as a voice for reconciliation. Go to AsWeForgiveMovie.com and be a part of the 4GIVE campaign by hosting an As We Forgive screening and discussion event focused on why Rwandans reconciling after genocide may be the most hopeful story for the world today. It's a chance to spark a real conversation in your community about the power of forgiveness and the ways that giving is at the heart of it all.
