     Understanding the times and knowing what to do 
    Standing as Christians in a diverse and pluriform society 

We live in a pluralistic and diverse society. How do we deal with the spirit of our times? What is our mission in this society as Christians and as Christian educators? At this year's conference we hope to try to interpret and unmask the 'zeitgeist'. It is important to recognise influences, be prepared and stay close to our calling! We aim to be a blessing by being salt and light in our communities, but how do we practice what we preach? As Christian educators, we need to understand the present times and prepare ourselves and our students. Are we equipping our students through our curriculum and learning communities to be that salt and light? Moreover, the way that we approach this situation will depend on how God’s Word is working within us.
