Spirituality, identity and the ethos of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk. Recent research emphasises the need to articulate the identity of the community of believers, especially amidst a period of transission. It also points to the fact that identity is closely linked with spirituality. The term 'ethos' is often used in this regard. This article is an attempt to outline the relationship and interdependence of these concepts. Even-tually, the results are applied to the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk, which, like other churches in South Africa, is being challenged to articulate the identity of its community in a transitional period.
