Towards humanity with a Kairos consciousness

Liewe broers en susters van die NG Kerk (Wes en Suid-Kaap streeksinode)

Ons groet u in die Naam van ons Skepper en Verlosser, Jesus Christus!

Ons het gistermiddag die goeie tyding ontvang dat die Streeksinode die Belhar Belydenis aanvaar het as een van die beleidsdokumente van die NG kerk, en wil u graag daarop gelukwens.

Alhoewel daar nog ‘n lang pad vorentoe is voor die hele NG Kerk dit aanvaar, is ons oortuig dat nuwe deure hierdeur ge-open is vir breer samewerking, veral om die armes van God te dien.

Mag dit ‘n Seisoen van ware eenheid in die lewe roep sodat die Goeie Nuus van die Woord van God meer aanklank kan vind by al God se mense en dat ons, sy volgelinge, hierdeur meer diensbaar sal wees.

We sense that the Spirit of unity is at this moment active in God’s world, in many spheres of life and not only in the church, and we are therefore beginning to witness a new season of unity. We pray that this decision that you have now made might spur you on to even greater unity, which in turn will unite more and more people in South Africa who can work together more effectively for the reign of God.

May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep by the blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord, furnish you with all that is good, that you may do His will. May He carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen (Hebrew 13: 20 – 21).

 God bless.

 Edwin Arrison (Rev)

    It’s great news indeed that the way is indicated for our agenda for the future and that the DRC is also coming into the fold!
