Some thoughts about Economics and Theology

i mentioned that the other night about thirty of us of various ages, genders and races hung out at The Warehouse in Wetton to discuss Economics and Theology. Wayne Eaves chaired a bit of a conversation between Ashley Visagie and Cobus van Wyngaard and then the floor was opened to questions. Here are some things that i learned or found interesting beyond the History isn't over point i spoke about in my previous post: # [...]

What if history isn’t done?

Within about another thirty, lunch break was over and i found myself studying as part of the LUT group. i'm not gonna lie, i just had to [...]

How about sitting with that one for a moment? Especially if you live in Cape Town where we have just about hit level 4 Water restrictions... What's that you say?
