AFRICAN RELIGIOUS SPIRITUALITY AND INCULTURATION

Takesure Mahohoma

Abstract


 This article seeks to demonstrate the impact of community life in promoting unity from an African perspective. We use the proto-community in Acts 2:42. The aim is to encourage all Africans and other people to cultivate a sense of belonging and valuing community life in the light of Acts 2:42. Hence we shall trace this theme from a Christian history. The other section touches on the essence of community life and obstacles that hinder it. We shall offer spiritual suggestions and an integrative reflection. The nature of the article is theology in general but spiritual in particular. As a spiritual article it is guided by a foundational approach. The expected result is that freedom from all the miseries experienced is brought by living a community life. This is a life that gives greater assurance of enough food, education, health, peace, employment and increased responsibility that values human dignity. The basic presumption is that there can be no development in any society without community life.
