Just come on over.Many people today feel lonely, isolated, and disconnected from God and others. We crave authentic community, but we have no idea where to start. We'd be glad to cultivate friendships, but honestly, who has got the time? In Invited, author Leslie Verner says real hospitality is not having a Pinterest-perfect table or well-appointed living room. True hospitality is not clean, comfortable, or controlled. It is an invitation to enter a sacred space together with friends and strangers.Through vivid accounts from her life and travels in Uganda, China, and Tajikistan, and stories of visiting congregations in the United States, Verner shares stories of life around the table and how hospitality is at the heart of Christian community. What if we in the West learned about hospitality from people around the globe? What if our homes became laboratories of belonging? Invited will empower you to open your home, get to know your neighbors, and prioritize people over tasks. Holy hospitality requires more of Jesus and less of us. It leads not only to loving the stranger but to becoming the stranger. Welcome to a new kind of hospitality! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leslie Verner.

In 1999, a terrifying new form of stem rust - spotted in Uganda and dubbed "UG99" - quickly turned robust golden fields into dark, tangled ruins. For decades plant scientists had bred wheat varieties with rust-resistant genes, but these genes did not work against UG99. Since rust migrates high in the atmosphere, it could spread from country to country, continent to continent. Breeders worried that UG99 would soon reach India and Pakistan, where 50 million small farmers produced 20% of the global wheat supply. If that happened, China, the world's largest wheat producer, might be next, and it would be only a matter of time before it reached American wheat fields. Breeders everywhere began searching wheat germplasm collections for sources of resistance. The largest collection was at the Center for Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT) in Mexico, developed by the brilliant Danish scientist Bent Skovmand. For three decades, Skovmand amassed, multiplied, and documented thousands of wheat varieties. He served as an advisor on wheat genetic resources to dozens of countries, and hunted for seeds that would contain the genes to protect the harvest from plagues like UG99 and the stresses of global warming. From the mountains of Tibet to the jungles of Mexico, he trekked into fields to consult with farmers. In an era when corporations and governments often jealously guarded breeding information, Skovmand fought to keep his seed bank a center for free, open scientific exchange. By telling the story of Skovmand's work and that of his colleagues, The Viking in the Wheat Field sheds a welcome light on an agricultural sector - plant genetic resources - on which we are all crucially dependent. 1.

The study explores the impact of ransom on reconciliation in Acholi traditional society as a tool for transitional justice in Northern Uganda. Fieldwork was carried out in Pader district, involving various stakeholders in the peace process and the grassroots. The study found that traditional justice, albeit with a few variations to institutionalize it, is an important method of reconciliation for Northern Uganda due to three factors, the faith the people have in it, scale of the war and because those involved in the war, who found each other on opposite sides, were neighbors, friends and family. The study also found that ICC intervention came in at an inopportune time of the peace process as Amnesty was working and the peace talks were progressing positively. However, it would be a welcome option, among Northern Ugandans on condition that the ICC carries out its prosecutions within Uganda or be present as neutral observers to ensure fair trials within domestic courts for all parties to the war. The study recommends the application of legal pluralism as the international, national and traditional/local systems can each play a major role in Uganda's transitional justice process.
This important piece of work is aimed at detailing the means through which Uganda as a nation has sought to resolve her disputes with other nations. The first chapters of the book contains an elaborate discussion of what constitutes an international dispute and the various means of settlement thereof. In so doing, the author further highlights the pros and cons of a State or Nation prefering a particular means of dispute settlement over another. These first chapters further offer the considerations that a State may take into account before choosing on any dispute settlement mechanism/means. In the later chapters, the author is astitute to highlight the particular disputes in which Uganda has engaged and how the same have been handled since Uganda attained her independence. Although the book is majorly based on Uganda's experience in the area of international disputes,other Nations and scholars should welcome it as its aspects cut across when it comes to the area of dispute settlement.
You are welcome to yet another shocking, and rather saddening, second volume of my book: Idi Amin : Tyranny and Dictatorship in Uganda. Idi Amin's reign of terror ,was a clear testimony of an African tyrant, whose regime, claimed many innocent lives of Ugandans, and those, who were incarcerated in his torture cells, were exposed to untold misery by making them feed on human flesh, dung, and snakes. [Dungeons of Nakasero] In years of his reign, whenever Amin addressed any public rally, he would begin, and end up with this slogan in Kiswahili : Amin motto, Uganda motto, which literally meant that Amin was fire, and Uganda was fire: nevertheless, let this historical book of the times, be a wake up call, that a new era of peace and unity, has dawned in the pearl of an African nation [Uganda]. [FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY]
