Healing the Seemingly Impossible

Service Type:

Following in the footsteps of the March 21 service on forgiveness, this weeks' program embodies the very heart of forgiveness and reconciliation... in Vietnam. How does this come about between countries with a history of war and hatred? What is it about the human spirit that overcomes sorrow and political obstacles to finding common ground and friends with former enemies? Bainbridge Island resident, Jerilyn Brusseau, speaks about her vision and the 25 year journey of PeaceTrees Vietnam. This program to replace unexploded bombs and land mines in Vietnam with trees and schools, was accomplished in the name of forgiveness and in the memory of her brother who died there.
