VAN DEVENTER, Wilhelm. Vhuthu in the muta: A practical theologian's autoethnographic journey. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.2, pp.1-8. ISSN 2074-7705.

A practical theologian constructs his autoethnographic and interactive narrative with Venda people and others. His own journey is integrated with those of church and community members. These joint lived experiences were shared in the households and families of the relevant co-participants. The concept of Vhuthu in the muta is explored in relation to its potential and problematics by means of autoethnographic stories, relevant literature, art, poems and linguistics. The article appreciatively and critically reflects upon Vhuthu and its possible value for practical theology.
