Kindred Credit Union sponsors The Amish Project!
April 10, 2017 –At Kindred Credit Union (Kindred), our values are woven into everything we do. One of our core values is compassion, and we’re delighted to sponsor the remount of the 2014 critically acclaimed production, The Amish Project. The Amish Project is a fictional exploration of the 2006 Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania Amish schoolhouse shooting and the journey of forgiveness and compassion that forged in its wake.
In honour of the show’s return, its production company, Green Light Arts is also launching 21 Days of Forgiveness, starting April 10, as one of their additional activities to foster community conversation around forgiveness as a tie-in to the show.
We’re pleased to support this production and we invite you to take in a show or participate in the 21 Days of Forgiveness as we seek to inspire peaceful, just, and prosperous communities.

More about The Amish Project
Written by Jessica Dickey, The Amish Project offers a focused meditation on the quality of mercy as it affects an imagined cross-section of the Pennsylvania town. The production helps guide the audience to understand, even slightly, how the choice to forgive is possible. It’s a one-woman show performed by Amy Keating, who plays multiple roles, including the gunman, his widow, two of the young Amish victims and a pregnant Hispanic girl.

More about 21 Days of Forgiveness
In 2014, when Green Light Arts first produced The Amish Project, the public was asked to send their submissions of personal stories about forgiveness. This season, Green Light Arts invites the public once again to tell their stories in 250 words, sharing experience(s) of Forgiveness, whether it’s forgiving someone else, denying forgiveness, being forgiven, or not being forgiven. Poetry, paintings, and photographs are also welcome. Click here for more information on submissions.
