Event description

Description

Two Christian leaders from Northern Ireland, Rev Dr Lesley Carroll and Derek Poole, who have both visited Rwanda, will share with the audience their impressions of how Churches there responded to the aftermath of the 1994 genocide.

Carroll will draw on her meetings with victims, survivors and Church leaders and Poole on the study guide ‘Lessons from Rwanda,’ which he researched and wrote for Thrive Ireland/ Contemporary Christianity. They will explore scandalous forgiveness in the light of concerns about justice, repentance and reconciliation and other issues.

The discussion will be chaired by Diane Holt of Thrive Ireland who will invite questions from the floor.

This is a unique opportunity to hear at first hand local insights into the legacy of one of the darkest moments in 20th century history and to reflect on possible lessons for us here as we contend with our evolving post-conflict experience.
