From all the work we’ve done over the last decade we know that forgiveness affects everyone from all walks of life. Whilst many of the real-life stories we feature tackle extreme crime and violence, we all face everyday issues of forgiveness all the time. So as we mark our 10th anniversary, we are holding a series of ten thought-provoking dialogues around the issue of forgiveness at St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace in London.
We mark our 10th anniversary in 2014 and we are holding a series of ten thought-provoking dialogues around the issue of forgiveness at St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace in London, UK. Each of the ‘Conversations on Forgiveness’ will feature speakers with contrasting views to explore different aspects of forgiveness, from the impact of betrayal within families to how different faith groups approach the topic.
The Forgiveness Project offers free digital media courses in British prisons. At the end of each course, the prisoners produce a short film on the subject of forgiveness. In this film, two long-term prisoners describe their feelings about causing death, for personal or political reasons.
