Journey Toward Forgiveness
Sponsored by Enid LGBT Coalition
Fourth Thursday Nights – No Charge – All Welcome
From Rage to Reconciliation
This hour-long documentary powerfully demonstrates that those who are able to embark on a process towards forgiveness–though heartrending and difficult– find it to be the path to inner healing. Seven emotional stories of people who have dealt with anger and forgiveness in the face of racial injustice, violent death and terminal illness. An ABC Network Television Special. Mennonite Media Production. Stories include:
• An Enemy Worse than Death — With the abduction and murder of their 13-year-old daughter, Wilma and Cliff Derksen begin the long path through grief toward forgiveness.
• Hospice Helps — Two families share how LifePath Hospice has helped them cope. Nathaniel, terminally ill, has to handle a deep family rift. The Ortiz family faces unresolved anger from their daughter’s death by a drunken driver.
• StoryKeepers: A Way to Heal — Susie Risho helps people heal from life’s many griefs by telling their stories.
• I’ll Give You the Gettin’ — Walter Wangerin, Jr., Lutheran pastor and storyteller, shares the story of a couple facing cancer and how the wife dealt with her anger over her husband’s illness.
• Turning Hate Into Hope — The shooting of his brother by a white marshal, his own beating, and a bargain with God, led John Perkins to many years of work for social justice.
• Forgive, But Remember — Lawrence Hart, a Cheyenne peace chief, tells the story of the Washita Massacre in Oklahoma in 1868 and a time of reconciliation 100 years later.
