Kairos Southern Africa held a ceremony at the Regina Mundi Church in Soweto on 18 August 2015 to mark the 30th anniversary of the Kairos document, dubbed “the moment of truth” by members of the religious community. Khulumani Support Group participated in the event.
Kairos is a Greek word simply meaning ‘opportunity’. When theologians use it it’s a decisive moment. Time to take a stand. Three decades ago church leaders in South Africa and elsewhere declared apartheid unBiblical. They placed a state that claimed to be Christian and that had the support of the Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk, in an invidious position.
In an interview with Linda Fekisi from The Journalist, Dr Marjorie Jobson, KSG national director, talks about the relation between the Kairos Document and the quest for Khulumani to find justice for the oppressed.
