This documentary and discussion focused on moral reconciliation, forgiveness, and repair related to acts of evil and wrong-doing, such as 9/11 and other acts of terrorism, the atrocities of the Holocaust, and genocide in Rwanda. The film (“The Power of Forgiveness”) includes stories and interviews with people from many faith traditions, including Buddhist (Thich Nhat Hanh), Islamic (Azim Khamisa), Jewish (Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel), and Christian (Rev. James Forbes), on topics on forgiveness and reconciliation. The documentary was followed by a student discussion led by Professor Barbara Hilkert Andolsen (Theology).
