Growing ecumenism in Guatemala


I am in Guatemala for a week to investigate religion and politics for "Interfaith Voices," the radio show I host. I hope to report on some of what I see and hear to NCR readers as my schedule permits.

On Monday, I traveled to the small city of Nebaj, high in the mountains of Guatemala. Nebaj is about 99 percent indigenous; its citizens are descendants of the ancient Mayan people who inhabited that land for at least 1,500 years.
