Writing from the United States, Ken Mufuka in his essay “Roman Catholic struggle for identity!” invoked Zimbabwean Christians recently to sympathise with the trials and tribulations of the US Catholic Church.
Mufuka argues that the gender discourse in America became so polarizing that the country’s Catholics risk either losing their faith or being ex-communicated, with the Catholic hierarchy finding itself in the predicament of being stongly associated with one political party.
My question is whether Zimbabwean Christians are capable of helping their brothers and sisters abroad (either by prayer or example)? Or they are too deeply bogged down with the Zimbabwean matters?
In other words, how mature are Zimbabwean churches to set off for overseeas missions like what their Christian peers from the US and Europe did in past centuries when they arrived in Zimbabwe with the Good News.
