Beliefnet Channel on Hulu

posted by Nell Minow

Be sure to check out Beliefnet’s channel on Hulu. Highlights include “The End of the Spear,” based on the true story of the widows of missionaries killed by one of the most brutal tribes in the world, who chose forgiveness, bringing their children to become a part of the community that had murdered their husbands and fathers. I interviewed Steve Saint, the son of one of the men who was killed, who grew up with the tribe, and he spoke eloquently about forgiveness and what inspires him.

Forgiveness obviously looms large in the story of Saint’s life and is a subject he has thought about at length. To befriend his father’s killer, he said he didn’t necessarily need to understand what happened or why.

“It might be helpful, but I’m a fan of one particular book and in that book, God sent his Son down not when we were perfect but when we were not,” Saint said. “God did not do it because we were ready or because we asked for him, but because we needed him.”

Beliefnet’s other sections include One Year, about snowboarding, and Miss HIV, about three different battles against prejudice, including an extraordinary African beauty competition for woman with HIV.
