A few months ago during sharing time, I spoke about the peace accords in Colombia and how they were drawing to a close. After a war of more than 50 years, a war responsible for displacing 6.4 million people (second only to Syria), the FARC guerrilla group and the government planned to cease hostilities and the FARC would demobilize.
While the final version of the peace accords was being signed in a grand ceremony in late September, I was on a plane headed to the capital city of Bogota. I awoke the next morning to exultant headlines in the newspapers. Colombia is at peace!
