Forgiveness through Stories

Guest Speaker: Rebekah Friesen

Rebekah Friesen grew up in a small Mennonite community in rural Manitoba, listening to her father’s stories of forgiveness sought ‘before the sun goes down.’ Life with a L’Arche community in Wolfville brought lessons in shared humanity, which were tested when her partner, Fritz Musser, was murdered in Georgia while fulfilling his dream of walking from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea. Rebekah is at the beginning of her journey into reconciliation and she invites others to join her in exploring themes of love, forgiveness and resilience, and in ruminating on what justice is and how we create it.
