VAN DER WALT, Johannes L.. Metaphorical bridge-building for promoting understanding and peaceful coexistence. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1. ISSN 2072-8050.

After briefly sketching the tumultuous nature of life in modern societies, the author calls on the reader to imagine for him- or herself the construction of a metaphorical traffic intersection that would enable those who make use of it to 'fly over' all the mayhem and disturbances. The proposed 'flyover' consists of three sub-structures or 'bridges', namely social capital, spirituality and education. A discussion of each of these sub-structures is followed by a discussion of the combination of all three in a virtual flyover that could contribute to a world characterised by greater understanding, respect, tolerance and peaceful coexistence.

Palavras-chave : religion; spirituality; social capital; diversity; multiculturalism.
