This has been interesting indeed! I have had an opportunity to reminisce about the different stories told by different people from different “worlds”. after this class. Acknowledging the fact that each of us has a story of life to tell and the difference in our stories is what actually makes life worth living.
If we did not have stories to tell, I was convinced in this class, that we would not strive for that which brings us to the source in which we believe lies our ultimate salvation. We would easily forget that each of us is important and love for one another would be the order of the day. The stories that I read about, especially of Mama Mbeki’s inspiration of a different perspective in people of a different culture, have made me understand deeply that each story has influence in other people.
This is what makes our ways of telling our stories very important!
