If you happened to be on CNN's homepage today, you got a glimps of a photo essay by the very talented celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, who traveled to Rwanda this summer with filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson to photograph some of the faces of forgiveness and reconciliation. Among these faces, you will see John and Chantal, whose stories are told in both the film and in my book. I also spotted a few backdrops I recognized as well as a few other people who I interviewed for the book, but whose stories did not get included. You can check out the moving photo essay here and Jeremy's own thoughts on the radical power of forgiveness in this article also posted on CNN today.

A Catalyst for Hope in Rwanda

I'm deeply grateful to see my book spoken of so highly by Brad Lomenick, the director of the Catalyst movement. Catalyst has been a huge supporter of Rwanda over the past few years by promoting groups like Compassion International, Rwanda Clean Water, and many other great groups dedicated to improving the lives of Rwandans.

Brad and several other Catalyst leaders just returned from a trip to Rwanda, sponsored by Compassion. He speaks about some of his experiences in a recent podcast and shares a few photos on his personal blog down in the right hand corner.
