THE ROAD OF UNITY IN THE FAMILY OF DUTCH REFORMED CHURCHES IN SOUTH AFRICA SINCE 1994: A DUTCH REFORMED PERSPECTIVE

Pieter Coertzen

Abstract


This paper is about the view of the Dutch Reformed Church on the ground covered
in the process of unity between the Family of Dutch Reformed Churches from 1994
to January 2003. Most probably some of the other churches will have different views
on some of the matters mentioned in this paper. The paper is an attempt to describe
the road travelled form official documents of the DRC, much of which was also
brought before councils of the other churches for their approval. Some of the
information also comes from official documents of the other churches. Other
information comes from personal knowledge through official involvement in the
process since 1994 and also from the interpretation that some other people gave of
the relationship between the members of the Family of Dutch Reformed Churches.
May this attempt to draw a map of the ground covered help us to chart the route for
tomorrow and the days after.
