Women’s Studies: The Power of Forgiveness

Four remarkable people testify to the healing power of the simplest, most difficult task some human beings may ever face.  Researchers say forgiveness-for petty insult, random violence, or genocide, can change one's life forever.  Among others, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh, and authors Marianne Williamson and Thomas Moore speak in this film by Martin Doblmeier, director of the film Bonhoeffer.  

Come and share potluck lunch while we watch the movie and join our discussion, led by Earl Thompson, who taught seminary courses about forgiveness for a number of years.  He suggests that reading Amish Grace, How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy, by Donald B. 
Kraybill, would add in our understanding of learning to forgive.
