Out of Africa

Don't miss Katie Sherrod's reflection "Getting voices of witness out of Africa" over at Desert's Child.

Here's but one of those "voices of witness" out of Africa:

"These are people especially the Church leaders who are supposed to be preaching love, tolerance, and acceptance and instead they are the ones trying to preach the opposite of that. Like in today’s newspaper the whole head of Church in Uganda, Orombi, is busy wasting time about gay marriages in UK instead of concentrating on pressing issues that affect the people of Uganda like the war in Northern Uganda. They are busy talking about people married in UK. They are wasting time on issues which are not really a big deal."
