Congolese rebels backed by Rwanda and Uganda
finally signed a peace accord brokered by Zambian
President Frederick Chiluba to officially end the
12 month old war in the Democratic Republic of
Congo. The signing ended six weeks of squabbling
among the rebels as to whose name should be
affixed to the peace agreement.
One way to celebrate diversity in a multi-ethnic
congregation is through “special evenings” of
ethnic culture and cuisine. A church in New
Jersey began such a series with an American
culture evening entitled, "Pizzazz." For the
price of admission, one received a piece of
pizza, a soda, a salad and a jazz concert. This
celebrated American culture.
