A Christian Exists in Community

Today was special, repeating same format as yesterday. In the Church Times, most pictures feature our SA bishops with the bishop of Umtata on the front page. (See the picture on the left!)

The worship of the conference continues to be uplifting, with a SA tune, Thuma Mina, as a theme song.

The Archbishop's challenge today was: how do we as bishops live as community and exercise our ministry in fellowship, citing Tertullian from the second century when he said a single Christian is no Christian (but a Christian exists in community). He further remind us that a bishop is a biblical person and silently listens to God with one ear and with the other to the cries, longings and needs of the world.

God bless,
