This digest is a hard copy of the first 20 Padkos mailings. It's an extraordinary collection from a remarkably productive experiment. We're confident the digest will be a useful resource fro thinking about the ongoing struggle of and for emancipation and humanity. One of the rules we made for Padkos was never to send out anything without some comment from Church Land Programme (CLP). Over time, the CLP Padkos sub-committee started calling these brief comments the "blurb", and we've included them in the digest too.

This volume of essays forms part of a series on the interface between ecumenical theology and social ethics in the (South) African context. This contribution is the result of a public conference hosted at the University of the Western Cape in May 2013 under the same title. It explores the quest for identity in so-called mainline churches in South Africa, given the history of the establishment of various denominations of mainly European origin in Southern Africa, ecumenical efforts to find common ground between such churches and breakaway movements among independent and Pentecostal churches where this search for identity is evidently found wanting.

"In No Future Without Forgiveness, Tutu argues that true reconciliations cannot be achieved by denying the past. But nor is it easy to reconcile when a nation "looks the beast in the eye." Rather than repeat platitudes about forgiveness, he presents a spirituality that recognizes the horrors people can inflict upon one another, and yet retains a sense of idealism about reconciliation.
