Myself, meet Stranger

By Inet Morudu, South Africa: I have watched myself evolve for the filthiest worst. From human, down back to ape. I am Sticky from sexual immorality, heart hairy from emotional neglect.

Sequins and Sapphires: Women!

By Kathryn Kazibwe, Uganda: Men are very blessed creatures. They are the ultimate creation. Made to protect, provide, encourage, lead… They are the epitome of God's creative vision.
