Winter School 2018: Reflections, Presentations and Video clips

Written by Wilma le Roux on . Posted in Ekklesia, Konferensies, VBO, Vennote

Winter School 2018

JUSTICE, RECONCILIATION AND UNITY:

REDISCOVERING THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL

Dion Forster wrote on June 5 at 9:10amInstagram

“The focus of the winter school will be on rediscovering the power of the gospel concerning justice, reconciliation and unity with specific reference to the South African context. Especially the three keynote addresses will underscore the inter relatedness of these themes as well as the sacrifices and radical action needed from societal structures, institutions and individuals to create a society that embody these ideals.
The three focal areas of reconciliation, justice and unity are not only key values of the gospel but also vital issues in our South African society. A renewed and deepened process of reconciliation is the only remedy for the still rampant racism we experience; a deeper understanding of justice will help us to tackle the issues of inequality and poverty.”
Every morning started with a devotion session led by ministers from different faith communities:
Day 1 (5 June) Stephen Pedro, Minister in Synodical Service for Witness, from the Uniting Reformed Church in South Africa (URCSA), led the devotion session by building it around a song “Christ be Our Light”. He said that the theme of this winter school was deliberate: Justice, reconciliation and unity “… because there cannot be true peace if justice is absent.” His scripture reading was from Ephesians 4:1-4.
On 6 June Anriëtte de Ridder, Minister in Synodical Service for Youth and Family Ministry, from the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) talked about Stories of Togetherness, using smells triggering things one remember, and sharing it. She used the story in Luke 5 about Jesus eating with Levi. She concluded: “….it is in the making of the fire, together; the cooking of the food, together; the eating of the meal, together; the laughing together; the differing in opinion, together; the sharing of experiences, that unity is born, relationships are restored, and justice is re-imagined. It is then that unity, justice and reconciliation happens in the heart, rather than in the mind.”
On 7 June Stephen Snyman, pastor in the Calvyn Protestant Church, led the delegates in praise and worship with his guitar and singing, and then talked about Zacchaeus in the tree. He concluded: “South Africans stands to lose such a lot. But we are also on the brink of gaining such a lot. May God help us to revive the spirit of Ububtu that has been captured, because reconciliation wants us to be real… reconciliation must be re-covered … re-embraced, so that we can live fully in South Africa – for God’s glory.”

Every day a plenary session with a keynote speaker on the main theme of the Winter School took place:

5 June: On Justice: Eleanor du Plooy, Institute for Justice and Reconciliation
6 June: On Reconciliation: Wilhelm Verwoerd, Beyers Naudé Centre for Public Theology
7 June: On Unity: Reggie Nel, Faculty of Theology, Stellenbosch University

After the keynote session, the programme broke into the morning parallel sessions with the following broad themes (delegates could choose one theme presented over 3 days):
P1: Biblical perspectives on Justice, Reconciliation and Unity
P2: Restitution, Reconciliation and Unity
P3: Justice and Decolonisation
P4: A generation seeking Justice
After lunch, the programme again broke into afternoon parallel sessions – delegates could choose one session on Tuesday and one session on Wednesday.

Jan van Zyl, minister DRC Moedergemeente Stellenbosch wrote beforehand about the RECONCILIATION LUNCH in the programme:
The Reconciliation Lunch has been held in Kayamandi, Stellenbosch for the past five years. Currently it is held at the Legacy Centre in Kayamandi every second Wednesday. From thirty to fifty people gather around the table at these lunches, and every person is served bread, a warm meal, salads, fruit and cold drinks. It is a table that brings people together from all different walks of life to share hearts, to learn and to grow together.
The Reconciliation Lunch creates a space where hearts connect and strangers become family.
While we eat, we share stories from our own lives about a particular topic, chosen by the facilitator who mediates the conversation for that day.This year 20 participants of the Winter School had the opportunity to join the Reconciliation Lunch on Wednesday 6 June.

Craig Bailie have put some of his reflections on the Winter School in writing. He writes: “Obviously, my experience includes only the parallel sessions that I attended. I send it to you in the event that Faculty may wish to publish something…” Click here tor read his well-written reflections: Bailie WakeUpYoureSleepyChristians FOR SUFT

Loop Saam

Written by Wilma le Roux on . Posted in Konferensies, VBO

Om in iemand anders se skoene te kan staan

Die kerklike wêreld het op 5 Julie 2017 tot stilstand gekom met die ondertekening van ‘n dokument deur die Gereformeerdes, Lutherane en Methodiste vanoor die wêreld, asook die Rooms Katolieke Kerk. Die dokument verklaar dat ons nou, na 500 jaar, op een plek staan oor die verlossingsleer. Ons word alleen uit genade deur geloof gered.

Bykans alle interkerklike verhoudings word hierdeur geraak. Die wêreldkerk sê hiermee onteenseglik ons is ernstig oor ons getuienis dat Christus heers. Hy verlos mense van hulle sonde. Hy laat sy koninkryk kom. Hy gee vir mense die verbeelding van ‘n nuwe wêreld waarin kragtige verhoudings oor kultuur-, taal- en historiese grense strek. Hy laat nuwe verhoudings ontstaan wat getuig dat Hy magtiger is as menslike voorkeure en aannames. Deur die beliggaamde versoening tussen mense word sy heerskappy gedemonstreer.

Die “Loop Saam- kursus” help ons om uitdrukking te gee aan die beliggaming van versoening en eenheid in Christus. Dit help ons om in ander se skoene te gaan staan en te ontdek hoe God ons lewe wil verryk deur verhoudings waaruit ons nog nie vantevore kon leer en put nie.

Wanneer? 23-24 Augusus 2017

Waar: Communitas, Stellenbosch

Met hierdie kursus wil ons iets gee waarmee ons gemeentes kan help om

  • oor grense na mekaar uit te reik,
  • vir mekaar om te gee en
  • saam te leer hoe om mekaar met liefde en respek te hanteer.

Die materiaal wat ons gebruik, is die twee boekies “Maak Kontak” en “Loop Saam” wat deur Chris van Wyk en Nico Simpson in opdrag van die Seisoen van Menswaardigheid ontwikkel is.

Hierdie kursus getuig oor God se droom vir ‘n nuwe wêreld. Dit kan jouself en jou gemeente oneindig verryk!

Met hierdie kursus, of eerder proses, glo ons, sal die menswaardigheid van ons land se mense herstel word.
