  • Description

    Women of three religious groups gathered in Dendale, Congo Kinshasa last week for a day of prayer. Catholics, Protestants, and followers of the Congo's Kimbanguism joined in a united service of prayer for their state and for the welfare of President Joseph Mobutu.

    This was the first joint service to be held, and is evidence of the increasing understanding between the Catholics, Protestants, and Kimbanguistes. This latter movement is typical of the results of the emergence in the country of certain prophet groups during the 1920's. The sect was founded by Simon Kimbangu, who strove to achieve what he regarded as an ideal compromise between Christianity and the inadequacies of traditional native forms of religion.
