In light of recent tragic deaths of young people on the streets of London, Jason Roach speaks with LCM missionary Jason O’Shea who trains churches to go into schools and tell the story of Zac, who at the age of 15 was stabbed to death by a group of boys he didn’t know. Children hear from Zac’s mother Sarah and his sister Tayo, about the ripple effects of Zac’s murder, and how, through their Christian faith, they were able to forgive the boys who took his life.
Jason shares how through Operation Forgiveness, young people can be equipped with the power of forgiveness, and the opportunity it presents for Christians and churches to build connections with their local schools.
Listeners are advised that in this episode, you’ll hear the story of Zac’s murder told by his mother Sarah and sister Tayo.
On 6 November, we'd love for you to join us to experience Operation Forgiveness for yourself, and find out how you and your church can get involved.
It will be a chance to meet the Operation Forgiveness team and talk about the practical steps you and your church can take to address knife crime in your local community.
