“God, do you have any hope?”
This question was asked by the founder of Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations (HHTN) as she approached Kigali, Rwanda just 12 weeks after the end of the horrific Rwandan genocide against the Tutsis in 1994. This was the beginning of a journey that led to the creation of the HHTN healing and reconciliation process. Today millions of lives have been changed by a fresh encounter with Jesus at the foot of his cross.
God’s answer to the question was found in Romans 15:13 – hope is God’s name! And the cross is where we find healing and reconciliation with God and each other. It’s the source of our hope. Jesus bore our sin and our pain on the cross, providing everything that we need to be healed of the wounds we have received in life, to find the power to forgive those who have wounded us, and the strength to repent to those we have wounded.
The HHTN immersive workshop has now come to North America as well. Here we could ask the same question – God, do you have any hope? Do you have any hope for race relations? Do you have any hope for reconciliation between the indigenous peoples you placed here and the settlers who took their land, lives, and dignity? Is there hope for reconciliation after genocide?
God is the God of hope for us here in North America as well.
