Chris Rice – 7 Lessons from a Post-Communist Landscape

In October 2011 Chris Rice and Gann Herman, from Duke Center for Reconciliation have visited Romania in a reconciliation tour. Then, together, we have visited Poland, aiming to understand what are the needs for reconciliation in post-communist lands.

In a recent blog post, Chris shares 7 lessons they have learned on this trip. Here they are:

Lesson 1:  The unfinished business of “post-communism”

Lesson 2:  Redemption must touch Russia

Lesson 3:  Intergenerational conflict and secularization

Lesson 4:  Screwtape is alive and well

Lesson 5:  Mirror to American Christianity

Lesson 6:  The witness of the church is alive

Lesson 7:  Fertile ground for renewal of the church

One thought on “Chris Rice – 7 Lessons from a Post-Communist Landscape”

  1. Un personaj vrednic de plins comenteaza in felul urmator acest text (si altele citeva asociate cu el), intr-unul dintre emailurile lui adresate intregului univers:
    ‘Trei misionari americani [de fapt erau numai doi, si nu erau misionari] au vizitat recent Romania intilnind trei “eroi” crestini evanghelici din Romania, Danut Manastireanu, Vasilica Croitor si senatorul Orest Onofrei (PDL Suceava).
    Surpriza: Anglicanul raspopit [badarania acestui om este evidenta din etichetele pe care le lipeste cu dezinvoltura tuturor celor ce-i ies in cale] Danut Manastireanu pozeaza in Baptisto-Penticostalul care a organizat si condus Biserica Subterana Romana in Anii Comunismului!!?? [de unde a tras acest personaj patologic o asemenea concluzie este greu de dedus; poate prin cartile de psihiatrie se pot gasi ceva explicatii]
    Putin mai multa modestie si onestitate nu ar strica…. chiar si unor moldoveni [evident, o asemenea tirada de ‘dragalasenii’ securistice nu se putea incheia decit cu o apoteoza rasista, in ton cu personajul, care se semneaza curajos, si pompos autodeclarat}
    Rev. Ioan S. Pop, Religious life & rights observer in Romania
    [poate ma intrebati de ce-mi pierd vremea cu un asemenea om bicisnic; nu stiu prea bine – poate din dorinta de a nu-i lasa pe cei naivi sa fie inselati, sau, poate, pur si simplu din orgoliu]
