08 Call to action
This is the invitation: to listen together, to share our stories, to organise our movements and act to see shifts towards shalom.
We have never been this way before. Our beloved African continent is facing a Joseph kairos moment that will define the lives of our descendants for generations to come. We have a limited 10-year timeframe to sow seeds and build strong foundations, but together we can define the outcomes of the coming African century.
This is the invitation: to listen together, to share our stories, to organise our movements and act to see shifts towards shalom. This report includes many ideas. It is not perfect or complete – we invite our readers to bring their God-given pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to the table so that a clearer picture of an Abundant Africa can emerge.
There is too much work here for one person, organisation or even denomination to do. Much in this report has already started and needs support. Other areas will need pioneering. We invite you to connect with Abundant Africa to learn from others and find others with the same heart to collaborate on what you have already been called to do.
Choosing priorities to focus on will be different in each place and space. But we will trust the Spirit of God for signs of new life emerging from the desert that we can follow. Together we will nurture the green shoots of hope to bring us closer to an Abundant Africa.
