Spirituality is great and necessary. But we also have material needs—which is what the colonizers realized when they brought Christianity and Islam: they built churches, while adding schools, hospitals, and vocational centers to their mission houses.
In addition to providing opportunities for spirituality, Isese practitioners could expand and diversify their sacred places by joining hands to construct schools, health centers, and other public spaces for devotees.
