Hope amidst the turmoil

In Charleston this week the Michael Slager trial (police officer accused with the murder of Walter Scott) ended in a mistrial and after some delay, the trial of Dylann Roof (white nationalist who killed nine members of a bible study at Emanuel AME Church to start a race war) began.

I was interviewed today by a reporter from NPR about faith and forgiveness in the context of these trials. (Thanks Shani for the introduction!) The last question he asked me was do I feel optimistic about the state of race relations in Charleston.
