A recurring theme of conversation in Christian circles in South Africa is that it is time for God’s children in every sphere of life to step up and display God’s goodness and wisdom by providing solutions to all manner of problems faced by communities and the nation as a whole.
This week, Gateway News, was tipped-off twice, by Christians inspired by a BBC video report about a group of residents in the town of Harrismith, who are sick of water and power problems and have taken the matter into their own hands.
In a Facebook post sharing the Harrismith residents’ initiative, Lee-Ann Viljoen, a coordinator in a movement that aims to mobilise Christians throughout SA to collaborate in delivering “Kingdom solutions”, says: “There is a South Africa we are starting to see stand up out of the ashes… a South Africa where everyday ordinary people are taking responsibility for our own communities.
A people who are called to BE THE DIFFERENCE we have spoken about for so long. THIS IS THE REAL NEW SOUTH AFRICA the whole country and even the world is eagerly waiting for. Servant leaders!!!”
