HUMAN DIGNITY AND CHURCH RE-UNIFICATION IN THE FAMILY OF DUTCH REFORMED CHURCHES

Sipho Mahokoto

Abstract



In this article church re-unification is developed as an instrument that can contribute to the
restoration and better understanding of violated human dignity The argument is based on
three central concepts used by the World Council of Churches in its debates on church
unity, namely �costly unity�, �costly commitment� and �costly obedience�. It is argued that
both human dignity and church unity are costly as it cannot be earned, but should be
realized in relationship with God and fellow human beings.

Keywords
