A Global Perspective on Trauma, Forgiveness and Racial Reconciliation  

As a follow-up to the dialog around hurt and trauma that took place at our Pastor Appreciation Brekafast, we continue the conversation with a look at how post-genocide followers of Jesus in Rwanda are dealing with trauma, forgivness and reconciliation.

The program will include breakfast and a talk by Jean (John) Gakwandi, a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and the Founder and Director of Solace Ministries, Rwanda, Africa. Solace is a Christian, non-political, non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of widows and orphans of the 1994 Tutsi Genocide. 

Solace Ministries is committed to a holistic process involving community development, medical care, education and employment for those who are physically able. Organized into sixty Solace communities throughout Rwanda, ranging in size from fifty members to several hundred, the goal of Solace Ministries is to become an alternative family for survivors, lonely, poor and desiring hope as they confront an uncertain future, restoring their dignity and creating networks of support for individuals who are traumatized.
