Abstract

[In its 2008 General Synod the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa considered a report on “homosexuality.”1 That was a moment, in my view, in which this church, who had declared apartheid, its biblical and theological justification a heresy, and led the ecumenical movement in doing the same; who in formulating in 1982, and adopting in 1986 the Belhar Confession as a new standard of faith, was confronted with yet another kairos moment in South Africa.2]
