About this item

Based on testimonies recorded in many languages in January 2008 and October 2009, some of them several hours long, Couture chronicles the peacebuilding activities of the community led by Bishop Ntambo Nkulu Ntanda, his lay leaders, and his ecumenical colleagues. They respond to the conditions created by the wars in the Democratic Republic of Congo 1996-2003, organizing relief, building social capacities, engaging in conflict transformation, and often risking their lives for peace. The rural Luba people in the town of Kamina and surrounding villages negotiate their understanding of Christian mandates and local tradition and practice, demonstrating that their appropriation of Christianity and local indigenous tradition can motivate practices of peace.
