Segment 2 Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
This weekend we were privileged to hear Immaculee Ilibagiza speak. She was invited to speak at the Christian Scholar’s Conference, held at David Lipscomb University and to share the details of the horrific 1994 Rwandan Holocaust and her personal story of survival and journey of forgiveness.
In her memoir, Left to Tell: Discovering God Admidst the Rwandan Holocaust, Immaculee shares how in just over 90 days, 1 million people were brutally slaughtered in her country and the death count included her mother, father, 2 brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and neighbors.
She outlines in brutal honesty how she felt abandoned by God for a time and how she wanted revenge on those who had committed these heinous crimes.
But as she said this weekend: “I have seen hatred and I have seen love. And love is more powerful.”
With God’s help, Immaculee truly came to know the complete understanding to the word: Forgiveness.
Join us today as we share this woman’s incredible story.
Our question this week is: “Is there something or someone between you and inner peace? Forgiveness makes us healthy and whole. It brings peace.”
Until next week, Peace!
