I saw the movie, "The Kite Runner", last night with Tim. I am probably the only person in my circle of friends who has not read the book and had no idea what the movie was about. Two young boys forge a friendship in Afghanistan before the Russian invasion. One boy brims with courage and one with cowardice. A horrific act by neighborhood bullies tears the boys apart as the coward looks the other way instead of intervening.

The movie brings redemption through the next generation. It shows the hard work of making amends when you could choose to walk away. The cancer of unforgiveness against yourself and against others spreads until it is routed out by the discipline of reconciliation.

Go see the movie. Rejoice in grace. Joni
