Victims of serious crime — abuse, assault, burglary, rape, murder — are engaging in a process of peace and reconciliation with Texas prison inmates who perpetrated similar crimes against others. “Restoring peace” will teach you how to use this successful process to build peace with those you have hurt or who have hurt you. It builds on the power of faith and stories to help you deal effectively with: responsibility, accountability, confession, repentance, forgiveness, reconciliation and restitution.
