The last full day of our seminar was less encouraging. The topic was diversity management and our speaker spoke wisely and compassionately and I really hoped for motivation and encouragement and ideas for working in my society to encourage people to work across human boundaries and prejudices. It seemed to me that the session was hijacked and it became unpleasant with a lot of crying 'I am a victim'. Perhaps we are ourselves not sufficiently healed to bring healing to our country. Or perhaps we seriously need to allow Jesus to work through and in spite of our brokenness.
I refuse to be discouraged, but the session did not fill me with hope. (Obviously my thoughts and opinions, others may have seen this otherwise!)
