"Where are you, God? It's something I have often asked myself. But I have learned that the real question is whether I have the courage to look for God in the midst of violence". (Tom Barnet, Lutheran pastor in Sierra Leone)

Does God hide when the evil side of man takes over? In Sierra Leone thousands of people were massacred, had a limb amputated or were forced to fight as child soldiers in a meaningless civil war. Now a fragile peace has come to the country. Muslims and Christians work together to heal the deep wounds, but what does it take to build reconciliation?

"From Sierra Leone, those who committed the atrocities and their victims talk about their experience of violence and how they perceived God during the war."
