Seek to Understand

 

This blog category seeks to provide social, cultural and political information which will set a context within which to have a conversation about issues of race and reconciliation within the broader society in which we live.

For the church, and/or churches, to be relevant, we must be in conversation with the wider cultural conversations, which are taking place around us.

To do this, one should consider the following questions:

Authenticate the struggle

Will I allow safe space for the transformational conversation?

Will I allow the Holy Spirit to give me “ears to hear” what my brothers and sisters have to say?

Will I have a heart of openness, love and forgiveness as I hear myself and as I hear them speak?

What has history shown me? What is God saying today?
