I went to church this morning for the second time in two weeks. I really enjoy attending church here. I’m not going to become one of those clichés who eschew religion in their teens and early twenties only to return to it in their later twenties; no way, no how. But it’s a really nice gathering of community. And this music is lovely. And a man, during the period when you are asked to offer us your own prayers, a man prayed out loud for the peace talks to continue. It’s the first time I’ve heard an Acholi mention the peace talks without me first bringing them up and probing for questions. It was nice. He said his piece, we said Amen, and we moved on.
