The Gospel and culture!

We are delighted to announce that the annual conference will take
place at St Saviour’s Church Walmer , Port Elizabeth from 16h00
Wednesday 27th to midday Friday 29th October 2010.

The following comment by a priest of this province at a recent clergy school.

As an African Priest I do not consider myself converted to the
Gospel of Jesus Christ, but a cultural contributor to the Gospel of
Jesus Christ”

This comment went unchallenged by any of the leadership of the
discussion, and we must remember that ‘silence gives consent’.  This
comment is indicative of some of the attitudes around the interaction
of the Christian Gospel and African Cultures in the Southern African
context.  The theme of the conference this year will be these difficult
questions of remaining true to the biblical Gospel within our own
cultural environments.  Discovering what critique of culture is
demanded by the uniquiness of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We will also continue build networks and fellowship amongst the
members of the FCA in this Province and together seek to chart a way
forward for the FCA in this region.

Time: Wednesday 27th October Noon (registration opens at 11am) through until 13.00 Friday 29th October 2010.

Speakers will include: More detail here

Archbishop Dr. Eliud Wabukala of Kenya and a member of the GAFCON Primates council.
