Resumo

TSHAKA, Rothney S.. A perspective on notions of spirituality, democracy, social cohesion and public theology. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.3, pp. 1-6. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/VE.V35I3.1336.

This article explores the notions of spirituality, democracy, social cohesion and public theology briefly. Whilst these notions seem unrelated to each other, the article finds that they are indeed very much related especially in a conversation pertaining to the role of theology in democratic South Africa today. It argues that these notions are particularly important if one seeks the unity of a dislocated people. The word dislocation here refers to more than merely those who were dispossessed of their wealth and land, but speaks especially also to a spiritual dislocation which happened as a result of that material dislocation. Black liberation theology which has always been public must be seen to incorporate issues of the spiritual in its reflections. All this, it is argued, has pertinent repercussions for social cohesion in South Africa today.
