PALM BEACH , FL (ANS) — Terry Mattingly, who teaches at Palm Beach Atlantic University and is senior fellow for journalism at the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, has written a moving column about how believers often wrestle with tragedy and death on the Mukono campus of the Uganda Christian University .
In his latest weekly column for the Scripps Howard News Service, he writes, “Families are large and disease common, affecting young and old. Terrorism and tribal conflicts in this culture often lead to violence, injury and death.”
Then, he quoted Father Stephen Noll, vice chancellor of this Anglican Church of Uganda school, as saying, “Someone will say, ‘My brother died last night,’ and he will say it as a simple statement of fact. Someone may report that a particular student will not be returning to class because he was killed in an ambush by the ‘Army of God.'”
