Ready to Forgive: An African Story of Grace

Presented by the National Council of Churches USA; Produced by the Evangelical LutheranChurch in America Even though the Acholi people of Northern Uganda have been living in a war zone over the past 20 years, they can teach the rest of the world a lesson about forgiveness.  More than 300,000 people were packed into camps for safety during some of those years. Despite all this, the Acholi people are ready to forgive the rebels who caused them so much pain.  They have a tradition known asMato Oput or "drinking the bitter herbs." When two parties come together and taste the bitter herb, they sense each others pain. Then, the broken relationship is restored. Join us for an hour-long trip into faith, forgiveness and reconciliation, an African story of grace, hosted by Rwandan genocide survivor, Immaculee Ilibagiza.
