Tuesday Photo Challenge: Worship

 

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, which I’m joining for the first time after seeing Cee’s post today, inspires bloggers to search their archives for photos that portray worship. After the horror of the Notre Dame fire, the sacred is on the minds of many.

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.

Life After Terror

I just watched an interesting documentary called Life After Terror on NHK, a cable channel from Japan. The documentary shows the efforts on an Indonesian man named Huda who has started an NGO to help rehabilitate people who got involved in ISIL. Most of this program shows how he helped a young woman who convinced her family, her extended family so there’s at least a dozen people, to leave Jakarta and to to Syria, where they’ll find peace. I was amazed that the father’s solution to not having his daughter go to Syria alone to join ISIL aka ISIS was to uproot the entire family and go with her.

The focus of the 28 minute documentary is Noor Huda, who after discovering that one of his old school friends was partly responsible for the Bali Bombings, leaves his job as a journalist for the Washington Post to start an NGO with the mission of reintegrating terrorists into society.

You can see this short documentary here on NHK till March 18th. You’re sure to learn a lot, as I did.
