Learning to Forgive

Spent an inspiring hour listening to Immaculee Hibagiza at the Calvin College January Series.A survivor of the Rwanda genocide, this woman has forgiven the people who killed her family and friends. She hid in a 3X4 foot bathroom for 91 days with seven other women and was barely a skeleton when she came out, and yet she can tell a story that is funny and inspiring. This is truly a woman who is listening to God,and I believe God listened to her prayer so that the hostile army didn't find them. What an amazing story! She left us with the thought -- when being kind conflicts with being right, be kind. I know she's on to something. Get right with God and everything else will start to make sense.
