Abstract:How does the Church in Africa bear witness to the spirit of God and conduct its mission with integrity in the contextual reality of HIV/AIDS, refugee crisis, poverty, corruption and abuse of human rights? And what should be done to enhance integrity of mission in the light of the Gospel and to bear witness to the Spirit of God in a context full of challenges? These questions are addressed in this paper. It presents the following suggestions for a possible way forward: promoting peacebuilding and reconciliation; providing visionary leadership and disciplining the nations; integrity in leadership; integrity of mission and the promotion of dialogue in a pluralistic context; inclusion of the marginalized. Notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
