At 12 c.t., we are welcoming Professor Thesnaar in our Centre for Advanced Studies with snacks and coffee, followed by a open discussion (13:30 to 15:30 approximately) on the topic "Prophetic dialogue: The quest for religious leaders seeking reconciliation":

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was an attempt, occurring at a particular time in our history, setting in motion the journey of truth and remembering, as well as facing the past in order to facilitate reconciliation, justice, transformation and healing. The 1997 TRC faith hearing was a very specific space where the leaders of faith communities could engage with past injustices, reflect on their role during apartheid, and indicate their contribution towards reconciling and healing our traumatised nation. Prof. Christo Thesnaars work seeks to critically engage with religious leadership regarding reconciliation in a post–TRC era: How can we develop responsible and prophetic leadership for faith communities in order to contribute to reconciliation and national unity in the current South African context?
