Prof Nico Botha speaks on hope

Prof Nico Botha, new General Secretary of Southern African Missiological Society, spoke powerfully on hope at the North-west University. He refered to hope as the courage to struggle. Its a struggle for life, a struggle for a future. Prof Botha challenge churches to be communities of hope in a the real world, not in heaven.

This is indeed a great challenge as on the one hand coloured communities are highly religious, yet also entangled in various pie in the sky churches. Spirituality is central to the develop communities.
