NY Times article

In our referral paperwork, both H and Baby T are reported as being Ethiopian Orthodox Christian. H even has memories of "going to the church and lighting candles at prayer sessions and attending Sunday school classess."
As the statistics go, about half of all Ethiopians are Orthodox Christian, about half are Muslim and a small percentage practice other religions.
This article is from this upcoming Sunday's NYTimes. It is from the travel section, but gives such great information about the country and the history of Orthodox Christianity that I thought it was worth a read. Thanks again, Mom for sending it!
