Barth Conference


I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at the "Reading Karl Barth in South Africa today" Conference held in Pretoria during the past few days.

What a privilege it is to interact with students and seasoned professors who are as passionate about the subject as I am, if not more. My topic was once again "Barth's definition of church in politics and culture" and was accepted very well. A couple of awkward questions, especially by my friend(?) Dion, kept me on my toes, but all went well.

Statement of the day that jumped out of my mouth without thinking: "The institutional church is one of those holy cows that sometimes needs to be slaughtered."

Oops. Did I say that?

Anyone who reads Barth needs a bit of challenging! Ha ha.

Now did you mean hole, or holy?!

Blessings,
