"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Zaminamina Zangalewa

  Zaminamina oh oh
  Waka waka eh eh
  Zaminamina zangalewa
  Anawam ah ah
That chorus is from a 1986 hit song by a Cameroonian makossa group 
originally known as "Golden Sounds. They changed their names to 
Zangaléwa after that song became incredibly popular.
The 2010 World Cup's official song is Shakira’s version of this song, 
"Waka Waka, This Time for Africa" as both a tribute to African music, 
with the World Cup being held in South Africa this year and as "a nod 
to the folks back home who’ve partied to this song since way back in 
1987 when the song rose to prominence thanks to West African DJs in Cartagena"
