June 4.   “Hurricanes, floods,  extremes in hot and cold weather, earthquakes and volcanoes, there is certainly much going on in the world around us. Is this a sign of end times?”  Portia asked.  “Some people young and not so young believe “the end is nigh!  Others don’t agree and claim that we still have much to learn and achieve.” “That isn’t the only issue really,” Mark said, “it is the challenge we face to manage and respond effectively to all these events now and until the end does come, whenever that will be. Our South African vision of ubuntu clearly does have much to do with that, for all of us old and young.”
