The goal of the Season of Human Dignity is the restoration of human dignity in South Africa. This includes all people in the general community. Where we cross boundaries to reach out to each other, and learn to treat each other with respect and love, we will see the restoration of human dignity for our countries.
We know that it is something that only God really can create in our community with people of different languages and cultures. The Lord Jesus is our best example in this. We will focus on stories of Jesus in interaction with various people in the Gospels.
We chose a number of stories of Jesus engaging with men and women to illustrate the values of the Season of Human Dignity: respect, listen, embrace and love. Together, the stories are inspiring examples to follow.
Each story of the Gospels is accompanied by a poster that can stimulate the imagination. We chose a focus text of the Bible story to help groups to see the essence of Jesus’ engagement. After some brief explanatory comments we give four generic questions that any group can use to unlock the meaning of the story. The four questions can indeed be used for any Jesus story in the Gospels.

This booklet is designed to help leaders of faith communities, individuals and groups of faithful followers of Jesus Christ to pray. The four values of the Season of Human Dignity – respect, listening, embracing, and selflessness (love) – provide the themes of the prayer liturgies. Each liturgy consists of three movements: receiving, sharing and giving and commitment.
For what we receive from God, we share amongst one another and give away to others.
