The Role of the Church in Achieving South African Democracy
Starts at 10:30 am
Location: Room 113
In this class we will view and discuss the video, The Threatened Miracle of South Africa’s Democracy, and learn more history and context from our own Leif Gjestland. Leif grew up in South Africa and has been affiliated with the Christian evangelical organization, African Enterprise, for many years. The video is based on a book titled, “A Witness For Ever,” by Michael Cassidy, whom Leif describes as the Billy Graham of Africa. After many frustrations and breakdowns in efforts to negotiate a settlement, Cassidy and African Enterprise played a key role in helping South Africa realize democracy was possible by encouraging all to see the image of God in all people.
