Transcript of RCCPC South Africa

at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man’s table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores. The poor man died and was carried away by the angels :: Luke 16: 20-22 Why go so far away when there is so much work to do at home? Sociologist Philip Jenkins writes, “Denominations are going to have to figure what to do when the bulk of the power and money is in the global North and the bulk of the people is in the global South.” We believe that, through this imbalance, God is encouraging us to make Christ-like friendships across the equator. We are mutually enriched when we intentionally pray, read scripture, and work on projects together. Phase 1.
We invite two ambassadors, Elethu Gantsho and Unathi Mlisa, from South Africa to join us for two - three weeks this fall.
