New beginnings

A new website is conceived.  A country is re-born.  A book comes to birth.

New beginnings almost always require forgiveness – to forgive means letting go of something that has inhibited or hindered me. So forgiveness gives us the chance of living in a new way or adding new dimensions to life.

Our inspiration is the personal stories of healing, forgiveness and reconciliation in Rwanda, which I have gathered into a book From Genocide to Generosity. Individual Rwandans tell us of their journey from hatred, violence and loss to healing, hope and forgiveness.

That’s the idea behind this website: to make available some of the resources which have grown from these stories.
