Keywords:Diversity, Identity, Missional church, Reconciliation, Transformation
AbstractThe goal of this article is to reflect on transformation and diversity in South Africa and specifically at University of Stellenbosch (US) and in the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC). It does so from a theological point of view in an attempt to understand what enhanced the process of diversification. The article highlights racial reconciliation. The methodology is basically descriptive with a few theoretical points made towards the end of the article that help to explain what happened in this particular case study.
