Deliver Us From Kony

kudoes to Christianity Today for runnng the article Deliver Us from Kony in the January 2006 issue. This article on the children of Uganga killing one another in the name of the Lord is not an easy read. But it is a more accurate picture than some of the simplistic things that get written about life in many places on the african continent. For too much is written from a western - north american mindset. We, in the west, simply do not understand the dynamics of people groups who have been lumped together in "countries" according to the whims of an imperialistic world.
When hope dies, the killing begins. Hopelessness and brutality are just two sides of the same coin.
