Change begins with reconciliation. In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Reconciliation is a spiritual process, which requires more than a legal framework. It has to happen in the hearts and minds of people.”
The road to reconciliation and change is long and the challenges are complex.
“Reconciliation is messy,” explains Brendon Adams, 29:11 Co-Founder and Artistic Director. “It’s hard work, but we can approach it with a spirit of forgiveness and love. We can invite others to sing with us, pray with us, serve in the streets with us, heal with us.”
