Noodkrete vir menswaardigheid

Die leierskap van die NG Kerkfamilie gaan ons tans voor om saam te fokus op 'n seisoen van menswaardigheid. Ons dink en soek en bid doelgerig saam om 'n lewe van ware menslikheid, omdat dt God se goeie wil is vir ons almal. Die 2014 Pinksterreeks wil ons spesifiek help om op hierdie ware menslike lewe te fokus en om saam by die Heilige Gees te pleit dat dit inderdaad oral onder ons en in die wye wreld waar sal word. Die reeks belig 11 aspekte van ons gebede om 'n menslike lewe:

1.'n Noodkreet om te behoort

Week of Prayer 2014
We strongly recommend that local congregations of the DR Church family reach out to each other during 2014's Week of Prayer. If congregations of the DR Church family can manage hosting their services together praying together, singing together and listening to the Word together much of what is set out in the sermons below, the reconciliation that we have all been yearning after for so long, can become a reality and be experienced!

Statement from the meeting of the 4 Moderamens of the Dutch Reformed Family
(23 June 2013)
On 20th November 2012 the 4 Moderators of the DRC Family (Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (URCSA), Dutch Reformed Church (DRC), Dutch Reformed Church in Africa (DRCA) and Reformed Church in Africa (RCA)) met to discuss the progress and development in the unity processes, especially with regards to the URCSA and the DRC. It was decided at that meeting to call a meeting of the four Moderamens to hold further discussions on this and to seek possible ways in which the 4 churches could work together. We are pleased to report that this meeting took place on 20th June 2013, in Kempton Park, under the leadership and facilitation of the President of the World Communion of Reformed Churches, the Rev. Dr. Jerry Pillay.
Memorandum of agreement
(7 May 2013)
During 2012 the executives of URCSA and DRC drafted a Memorandum of Agreement under the guidance of Dr Jerry Pillay, the President of the World Communion of Reformed Churches.

This agreement was approved by the General Synod of URCSA in October 2012 when also the moratorium on church unity was revoked. The Moderamen of the DRC also approved the agreement.

According to the Memorandum of Agreement we agreed to covenant together for unity because we believe that the Lord, who graciously committed himself to us, requires this of us.

The unity we envisage is a new organically united reformed church, organized according to synodical-presbyterial structures, which lives missionally and is committed to the biblical demands of love, reconciliation, justice and peace. At the same time we are committed to non-racialism, inclusiveness and the acceptance and celebration of our multicultural composition. The different languages in our churches will be treasured.

We agreed that the Belhar Confession will be part of the confessional basis of the reunited church.
Together we agreed to address reconciliation and restorative justice in a compassionate way.
