Every Sunday we go to the primary site for church at Kasana Community Church. The service usually lasts for about 2 and a half hours (except on Family Sunday when it's about 4 hours). The singing lasts about an hour and a half and the sermon is about an hour. About half the songs are in English and about half are in Lugandan. I'm starting to pick up on some Lugandan songs. If I listen carefully you can pick out some Lugandan words that I know like:
So you can sort of figure out the point of the song. There is a LOT of clapping and usually your hands are hurting at the end of the song. Yesterday, Uncle George was preaching on the Armor of God. He had this boy stand at the front for a whole hour with the "Armor of God" on. The principal of the primary school was translating the sermon. At the end we left the church to walk home. Since it is the middle of the day it is usually very hot walking home. I was a bit behind the others so I got a ride back home. But some people walk really far to get to church. So that's what church is like here in Uganda.
