Cape Town

I have moved to Cape Town, part of a fascinating and challenging part of the world. When one lives in the comfort of Dallas, as we did for 34 years, the problems of the third-world are all “over there.” The challenges one faces are far away and white, middle-class life proceeds calmly and without interruption. By contrast, one is brought face-to-face here by those problems. What is the role of a university, for instance, when so many have had poor and inadequate schooling? Should the national rugby team reflect the demographic makeup of the country or be chosen on merit? How should the church respond to sharp income inequalities in its own midst? I thought it would be helpful to reflect on these challenges hence my return to this website.
