While some Western theologians have identified a weariness with regard to the ecumenical agenda, Christians in countries like Uganda cannot afford such ennui in the face of political divisions that have often fallen along religious divides. This paper draws attention to a neglected connection between religious conflicts (esp. Roman Catholic vs Protestant / Anglican missions) and current tensions in Uganda. It calls for Catholic-Protestant reconciliation in modern Uganda and draws on insights from John Yoder, John Paul II and Miroslav Volf to develop a theology (and a culture) of grace that can renew ecclesiology and help overcome hostility and alienation.
