Banner Exhibit

January 17 through January 27, 2017

Panel Discussion

January 17 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Wille Hall (Coats Campus Center)


Created by The Forgiveness Project, The F-Word: Stories of Forgiveness features personal stories of forgiveness in circumstances many would find unforgivable.

The very word "forgiveness" is powerful, universal and divisive. Forgiveness inspires and outrages in equal measure. Why the disparity? To some, forgiving is weak and offensive, while to others it is the only way to live with the past without being held captive by it.

Join us to explore how concepts of reconciliation, conflict resolution and dialogue can be used to break cycles of violence and restore hope.
