My thoughts are somewhat overshadowed by the fact the Prof Steve de Gruchy of UKZN is missing. It seems that he must have had an accident on the river and no one knows what happened to him. So now they are searching.
And I remember last year the chill that I felt when I heard that they were searching for Rev Barry Marshall who was swept out to sea. The search, the wait, the questions.
I don't know what the latest news is, but I pray, 'Lord vindicate yourself.'
(Prof de Gruchy is head of the UKZN School of Religion and Theology and a minister in the Congregational Church.)
