Season of Human Dignity
The Season is an initiative of the four sister churches of the family of Dutch Reformed Churches. In this space we, together, are going to make a difference to the need in our country.
The objective of the Season is the healing of human dignity in South Africa. The message, that God gives dignity to all people, must be contemplated and put into practice once again. During the Season we will particularly focus on restoring and promoting 4 values, namely respect, listen, embrace and love.
We know that, in our communities with people of different languages and cultures, it is something only the Lord can do. The Lord Jesus is the best example for us in this. Therefore we focus on the stories of Jesus’ interaction with different people in the gospels. The healing of human dignity becomes real for our countries there where we, as disciples of Jesus, can reach out to one another, over boundaries, and learn to handle each other with respect and love.
We chose four stories of Jesus in conversation with men and women that illustrate the values of the Season of Human Dignity. The fifth story is the master story for the Season of Human Dignity – Jesus washing the feet of his disciples. Together the five stories give us inspirational examples to follow.
