Amazing perspective

26 01 2008

Karen Edmisten posted a blog entry about an amazing book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

Immaculee Ilibagiza spent three months holed up in a pastor’s bathroom — bathroom! — with seven other women. Rather than go insane, as I think I certainly would have done, she went deep into meditation and prayer. To the point where, after she resumed “normal” life, she missed the quiet time with God.

I’m heading to the library for a copy of Left to Tell as soon as I get back to the States.
