Abstract

Being church in times of change: The Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerkagainst the background of shifting paradigms. Against the background of the turn of the millenium, humanity finds itself in a stage of transition. Not only are the church and theology fully aware of this, but they are directly afected. This study is an endeavour to assess where the church, theology and believing community in South Africa, and particularly the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk, finds themselves against the background of a world-wide shit in paradigms. The study concludes with a few remarks regarding statements, positive and negative, which are being voiced by leaders in the church and by theologians within the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk. These remarks focus on how the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk should meet the approaching millenium. It is obvious that the church is nearing a very exiting, but crucial time in its vocation as church.
