Jean is an amazing man who is able to show us how we are all connected. This may not be an earth-shattering story, but to the woman who needed a place to stay and an understanding ear it is. In Chicago more than a decade ago, Jean came to speak to our community about forgiveness. I was so touched by his insight that I realized I had to learn that I need forgiveness in order to be able to forgive others. Many people use the term "this changed my life". But, it did. With his books and discussions he writes what he believes-that we all need each other.
