Prayerful Guidance at Such a Time as This

Fellow Disciples of Christ

Prayerful Guidance at Such a Time as This. In the light of the present State of affairs in South Africa, civil society is called upon to stand for stability, justice, and better life for all. The church should not at any time be seen as aligning itself with any party regardless of what that party is.

The call for the nation to unite and express their disquiet is irrespective of political persuasion, socio-economic standing or racial difference. This is a call for us to collectively speak and act in the best interests of the country.

A call has been made by a coalition of civil society bodies led by SAVESA to express collective indignation about the present state of affairs which includes the country being downgraded to junk status. The MCSA calls on all to set aside the
time leading up to The Resurrection as a period of lament and prayer for something new to be born out of the present crisis.
