In a recent comment on one of our posts, my seminary classmate, Amy, wondered if we could post a list of our names, as she had been praying for each of our members. I don’t know if any of us realized that we hadn’t posted our group list anywhere! So, I thought I’d put up some pics to help you match faces with antics as you read about our adventures and experiences.
Renee is a former UTS student, and is now retired. Here she is with Thoko, our “Mama” during our stay in Guguletu.
Scott and Sam at JL Zwane Church in Guguletu
Mary, modeling her new earrings after a trip to a fair trade shop.
Deb, with James Matthews. James is a poet, active in the resistance movement against apartheid, and still advocating for human rights. (P.S. Notice Deb’s fashion-forward glasses-holder, a souvenir from the fair trade shop. Soon to be all the rage the world over!)
Our University of St. Thomas contingent. Sam is a recent graduate, Kim is a professor of systematic theology (and the architect of our itinerary here) and Annette is a current student. We love our UST compadres, especially since their school’s initials are so easy for us at UTS to remember…
Terri, with Mary Sili. Mary was one of our guest speakers – so gracious, and witty! We all adored her. Terry is the co-manager of our blog, and our resident IT expert.
Chris (our UTS professor), Karen (with camera), Scott, Mary, Debbie, Annette, and Heather.
Richard, with Kim. Richard is a priest at St. George’s Cathedral here, and is one of our instructors, as well as our cultural liaison, spiritual adviser,, and so many other things. He and Kim have been friends since college, back in the 20th century.
Our wonderful van driver, Xolani!
And this person!
