Introduction, Workshop 11: The Call for Forgiveness

In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program

When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it? — Eleanor Roosevelt

In this workshop, youth examine forgiveness, in both large and small scale. Forgiveness plays out in different ways in relation to social justice. This workshop acknowledges the topic of oppressors seeking forgiveness for oppression, but focuses more on an individual's responsibility to seek forgiveness. If every person accepted this responsibility, perhaps institutionalized oppression would have difficulty taking root in our society.
