The Healing and Rebuilding our Communities (HROC) program in Burundi is highlighted in Pendle Hill’s most recent pamphlet.
“Expanding on his plenary address at the 2011 Friends General Conference Gathering, Bruce Birchard describes the work of reconciliation on three levels: between his gay brother and traditional father, among three branches of the Religious Society of Friends, and in two African nations torn apart by genocidal conflict. He shares how he reexamined his thinking about the roles of activist and reconciler and about God as a noun and a verb. Discussion questions included.”
