Moore explores forgiveness in new documentary

In August 2006, Journey Films announced its new 90-minute documentary, The Power Of Forgiveness "that takes an honest look at the intensity of anger and grief that human nature is heir to." The production company is inviting groups to host a screening and discussion of the project.

"The film includes stories and interviews with people from many faith traditions: Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel on forgiveness in the Jewish faith; Azim Khamisa on forgiveness and Islam; Rev. James Forbes, pastor of Riverside Church in New York, on forgiveness from a Christian perspective. And best-selling author Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul) speaks on forgiveness from a spiritual dimension."

Before its showing on PBS in June 2007, special screenings, to be facilitated by filmmaker Martin Doblmeier, may be booked from late February 2007 through early April 2007. The link provides contact information for those interested in hosting this event.
