To pray or not to pray: thoughts on an Angus Buchan prayer meeting

"If my people pray... then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land." [2 Chronicles 7.14 beginning and end] Wow. This feels a little bit like a dejavu flashback or something. From two weeks ago when the question was to march or not to march, which i wrote about here. Afterwards i wrote a comparison piece looking at different marches over here. As i've done my best to navigate the [...]

Deep Dive your way to deeper relationship.

Last night we hosted our second Deep Dive Dinner Conversation in Durban. While Saturday's was a group of all white people chatting about Identity as a white person in South Africa, last night was a completely more diverse group of twelve including indian, coloured, black and white. Two very different dinners, but each with a specific focus and both providing some amazing conversation. But the most outstanding thing for me at both dinners was the [...]

Anatomy of a march

This follows on from 'South Africa - the week that followed: Where to from here?' so if you didn't read that maybe start there. BEWARE THE IDEAS OF MARCH For all those of you who marched or live protested for the first time on Friday, i think it might be helpful to share one possible reason or different perspective that may help you see why some people took issue to the idea of the march. To achieve [...]

South Africa – the week that followed: Where to from here?

South Africa, how are we doing? How is Justice being fought for this week? It's been a week since a bunch of you wore black in protest. It's been a couple of days since a bunch of you marched, a bunch of you didn't march, some of you held hands in a chain [or if reports are correct, went to go and hold hands in a chain and didn't hold hands in a chain, but [...]

Having received your marching hors d’oeuvre…

If this last week was the first time you ever did anything in terms of protest then THAT IS AMAZING. Well done. Good for you. That's really great. At the same time it is very possible that it also sucks that it took you so long. i fall into that category. For the last two and a half years i have been going on about this stuff in terms of writing and engaging with people [...]

To March or not to March [and the answer is Yes!]

This started out as a Facebook status but got a little long: A bunch of people have been asking me what they should do tomorrow or for advice on what to do and let me straight up say, "i don't know!" i certainly am not someone who gets this as much as i want or need to and i have a whole lot of learning to do - i just talk about it a lot [...]

The art of having an opinion… via Survey

Some of you may have seen that i put up a survey the other day on Facebook... [If not, there is probably still a little bit of time as it was only up for a day and i don't know how to extend that - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7RXRBJC] i was chatting to my good buddy Dreadlock Mike on the Whatsapp [it bothers me so much that Whatsapp has an 'H' in it for some reason] the other [...]
