After a year of work, it seems that most things are in place for a seminary Globalization Trip to South Africa. With four students and a faculty colleague, we leave in two shifts Thursday and Friday, with plans to be in Johannesburg, Pietermaritzburg, and Cape Town. Plans have centered around the contacts made during my 2008 sabbatical, which was based at the Lutheran Theological Institute centered adjacent to the University of KwaZulu Natal. The eight student I taught at that time are now assigned to parishes in a variety of places in South Africa. We won't be able to see them all, but I'm hoping for as many as possible. We'll keep you all posted who follow the blog.
