A Story of Dignity and Reconciliation

In this short video “Stolen Cattle,” Dr. Mark Baker (Professor of Mission and Theology, Fresno Pacific University) tells an inspiring story about proactive peacemaking, restorative justice, and missional honoring.
Farmers of a Mennonite colony in Paraguay were losing their cattle to theft. Instead of withdrawing from their neighbors or demanding legal reparation, they initiated a wide-scale development program to address the root causes of the brokenness and theft. The motto for their program–“A Life of Dignity for My Neighbor!” Their imaginative response is an instructive example of putting honor into action.
