Slowing Down Kony2012
Yes, Kony must go. But let’s slow down and get educated contextually, missionally, and theologically. Two excellent critiques here from two Duke Divinity grads: Responding to Kony 2012 by Thera Freeman (who spent 3 years in Uganda with the Mennonite Central Committee), and A Non-Violent Response to Joseph Kony by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove (author, New Monasticism). Both point to the stories of faithful witnesses who have suffered in and embodied hope in the pain of northern Uganda for years.
