Interesting story from the Taiz?© meeting in Kenya:
At Kamulu, in a rural area just outside Nairobi, young people astonished me when they asked, ‚ÄúIs art important for people in Europe?‚Äù I can‚Äôt remember what I replied but I do remember that the question was asked seriously, in a concerned way, and I think all of the young people had the same look on their faces.
I asked, ‚ÄúIs art something that is important for you?‚Äù
‚ÄúObviously! We have our traditions, our songs, and our dances. These are the most precious thing we have.‚Äù
‚ÄúIn the parish too?‚Äù
‚ÄúIn the church, of course.‚Äù
