Forgiveness Is Possible

Pumla Gobodo- Madikizela, a coordinator for South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 1996 and a researcher on trauma and healing, reminds us that forgiveness is possible no matter the attrocity on Duke Divinity School’s blog Faith & Leadership.  She shares with us the lessons that she has learned from forgiveness and challenges the belief that the only response to mass atrocity is revenge.  For Pumla Gobodo- Madikezela and for me, forgiveness is possible.

She recently spoke to Faith & Leadership while at Duke Divinity School for the Center for Reconciliation’s Summer Institute.
