An interfaith peace garden in Northeast Baltimore builds tolerance among religions through annual conversations about forgiveness. At-risk youth forgive others and themselves with the help of drumming and dance.
It's all part of a four-year Maryland Public Television campaign wrapping up this Tuesday to promote love and forgiveness. But participants say the program, part of an effort to build the concepts nationwide, will have a lasting impact.
MPT was one of five stations that worked with the Fetzer Institute, a foundation based in Michigan that 'engages with people and organizations to bring the power of love, forgiveness and compassion to the center of individual and community life,' said Linda Grdina, an officer with the Fetzer program."
