Church Matters Podcast: Episode 31: The Church’s role in Government Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Part 1 of 2
Guest: Dr. Piet Meiring

2009, 15 min
What can the church learn from the South African church’s experience with apartheid and its Truth and Reconciliation Commission? Dr. Piet Meiring is an ordained minister in the Dutch Reformed Church, a theology professor at the University of Pretoria, has authored or co-authored thirty books, and has been deeply involved in apartheid issues in South Africa for over three decades. Most recently he served with South Africa’s truth and reconciliation commission, and has since been invited to serve as an advisor in a similar process in Rwanda. In Part 1 of this two part series, we learn about the church and its role in both supporting and dismantling apartheid. In Part 2 we ask Dr. Meiring what the church in Canada can learn from the South African church experience, and how we can apply this knowledge to the recently launched Aboriginal Truth and Reconciliation process in Canada.
