In the first half of this year we have had two very different yet turbulent events that have brought a lot to the fore for our students. These have been the UCT “Rhodes Must Fall” campaign and then the national Xenophobic attacks. They have highlighted for us the challenge this generation faces to have love, wisdom, courage and faith to speak into secular ideas of national transformation with the truth of Biblical transformation. It has been a weighty time speaking into these situations and feeling the gravity to have to respond and disciple hearts.
We held a panel discussion for the UCT Campus Ministry to equip students to interact with their peers on issues related to these incidences.
