Yesterday my pastor had some interesting thoughts on immigration in his sermon on the life and times of Joseph in the Genesis narrative. This in light of South Africans listing numerous reasons for wanting to move to places like Australia, New Zealand and the UK. At the top of most of those lists is the crime factor here in SA, and this article from the East Coast Radio Blog just shows some of the horror of the situation. I’m still wondering, as a Christian, whether leaving or not due to crime and corruption in this country is a gospel motivated action. I suppose each individual case needs to be considered.
Elsewhere Dion makes some interesting comments about the ‘recolonization’ of Southern Africa and punk rockers, NOFX, the band that refused to be ‘colonized’ by major record labels since 1983 will be jamming in Cape Town on the 9th November.
Finally, I just discovered a blog tracking site for South African blogs, unlike Amatomu which tracks all the movements in the SA blogsphere, this site, South Africa’s Daily Voices, daily updates the top 15 posts and blogs in SA. How did I find it? Well somehow a little throw away post that I wrote two days ago got ranked inside that top 15 – can you believe it!
