My last trip to Iraq was full of opportunities to work on Kurdish, meet the servants of the Lord, and develop friendships with individuals whom I found as I began research into Kurdish folkloric stories and songs. There is one long song I am looking for in which they tell the story of Joseph in elaborated, imaginative, detail, but following the Biblical narrative rather than the Quran. My preliminary discussions with knowledgeable Kurdish men encourages me to think that this is one good way to enter the language and culture in a way that the gospel of reconciliation can be "on the table."
