Amish Grace

Last weekend we saw an extraordinary story of forgiveness in the movie, Amish Grace.  In 2006 a man distraught over the death of his daughter nine years earlier entered an Amish schoolhouse and shot several young girls.  Five died.  This is the story of the response of the Amish community to the horror that they experienced.  It is based on the book Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcends Tragedy by Donald B. Kraybill, Steven M. Nolt, and David Weaver-Zercher.

The full movie is available online at the Lifetime Movie Network's website, here.  It will be available online through April 28, 2010.
