The diverse and divided South African context of post 1994 is the context in which the texts of
reality are read (knowledge is created and reality is interpreted). This particular diverse and
pluralistic reading with and within the context is sensitive to the voice of the other and thus
provides an inbuilt deconstruction thereby offering a vulnerable practical theological openness
to the global conversation beyond certainties. This holy folly of vulnerability was explored
with regards to South Africa’s practical theological contribution to the global conversation.
