Healing of Memories

Healing of Memories & Reconciliation Consortium

Volunteer Counsellors Database

INTRODUCTION

The Healing of Memories and Reconciliation Programme is driven by a Consortium often Ecumenical organisations. Through a multi- faceted and centrally coordinated strategy of:

  • Healing of Memories sessions and facilitator training workshops,
  • trauma counselling and support programmes,
  • organizational capacity building, and
  • publicity campaigns.

The Programme aims to continue a “communal grassroots version” of the work of the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in the province. The grand aim is to restore peoples’ dignity and humanity, to heal people and help them to develop attitudes and actions that support a just, equitable and whole society.

It is believed that this will empower the affected communities to address the problems of accumulated pain and ‘multiple woundedness’ resulting from many years of apartheid injustice and oppression; political, criminal, and gender-based violence; conflictual relationships between farmers, farm workers and farm-dwellers, as well as the traumas caused by poverty and HIV/AIDS. In order for the consortium to achieve its objectives in KwaZulu-Natal, the need for teams of volunteers to offer counselling to survivors of these multiple forms of violence has been identified.

PURPOSE OF THIS DATABASE

The purpose of this database is to provide a list of qualified counsellors from churches in various regions of KwaZulu-Natal. These volunteers are qualified in various aspects of counselling such as:

  • Healing of Memories,
  • Stress and Trauma,
  • Home-based care,
  • Basic Caregiving,
  • Pastoral Care,
  • Marriage Counselling,
  • First Aid.

Some are qualified psychologists while others bring over ten years of experience in counselling. This database of counsellors has been organised by provincial regions, namely, KZN Midlands (uMgungundlovu), South Coast (Ugu), KwaZulu, Thukela AmaJuba Mzinyathi and Durban. Within these regions a number of ecumenical organisations offer a range of counselling services to the public.

A Ministry of Caring – A theology of care in the context of Healing of Memories and Reconciliation

Why do we care?

We care because God cares. It is especially in times of suffering and persecution, of temptations, trials and tribulations, of upheavals and chaos that we remember and are reminded of God’s caring grace and love. It is in the darkness of life-threatening challenges for us individually, as a community, or as the world at large that the light of God turning to us and being ‘Emmanuel’ (God-with- us) shines forth and gives us comfort, new hope and strengthens our feeble faith. The relieving message of the might, power and victory of God overall the forces of evil and destruction then becomes a central aspect of our faith.

God’s care

In faith we state: God has created the world and is in charge of it. God created it for the benefit of the whole of creation. We are called to care for creation by not misusing the responsibility given to us. God’s care was directed especially to us humans who had a protective home in a ‘garden’, but it also extended to fallen humanity when Adam and Eve were clothed and cared for after the fall and when God made the protective sign on Cain. The family of Noah with the animals in the ark were spared during the destructive deluge of God’s wrath.

God’s caring ministry accompanied the families of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebeccah, Jacob and especially Joseph in Egypt through whom God saved His people from starvation. Through Moses God became the redeemer of the oppressed, freeing the Israelites from foreign bondage. With the sign of the uplifted snake in the desert,
which has become the symbol of the health ministry, God saved from death and illness. In Exodus 15:26, we read of God as “physician or healer”. Jesus would see in God the caring Parent to whom we can turn with all our needs, as he expressed it in the Lord’s Prayer.

Caring Commandments

God cares for the faithful through the Law and Grace. The commandments are meant to protect the different relationships, between God and us, with our fellow humans, ourselves and the world. God calls us to protect society, by respecting those in authority, protecting life in all its forms, regulating relationships especially between the sexes, honouring values, respecting the good name and integrity in public, and by supporting individual and common property, gifts and talents.

The prophets are symbols of a caring ministry when they stand up – often with harsh words – against those who go astray and thereby miss true life. They castigate especially the leaders and those who egocentrically suppress the poor, the widows and orphans, instead of caring for them.

For the people in foreign captivity and bondage, having lost their freedom and their centre of spiritual worship, the prophets bring words of comfort and support (e.g. Isaiah 40 and 43) and witness to the love, charity and grace of God who loves “with an everlasting love” (Jeremiah 31:3).

Jesus’ compassionate care

God renewed the promise of caring for the faithful and the whole fallen world by sending Jesus the Christ, into the world as the saviour, and the name ‘Jeshua’ means ‘God saves’. The Gospels tell us how Jesus healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, cared for the crippled,

 

raised from death, invited the outcast, visited the disgraced, gave hope to the poor (Luke 4:18-21). “When he saw the crowds, Jesus had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:36). He called the disciples to witness to and become involved in God’s caring ministry. And having received the Holy Spirit as comforter at Pentecost we see them healing and helping, supporting and protecting the needy in such a way that even others spoke of the early Christians “see, how they love each other”.

Paul would emphasize the saving ministry of Jesus in His suffering, dying and resurrection for us in the ‘theology of the cross’. He identifies the congregation/church with the living body of Christ in which one member suffers with the other, and we are thereby called to support and care for each other. In many of the New Testament letters we are called to support, visit, heal and pray for those in need.

Expressing our care and hurt

When we do not find words to express our loss, pain, and hurt feelings we can turn to words and prayers of those who have cried out theirs in the many different situations as expressed in the psalms. Here we find expressions of hurt, lamentations, of calling for help or of praising God. We also find these in other biblical books as of Job where his friends accompany him in silence and then in trying to find an answer to the question why God allows suffering. The story of Jonah and his prayer, which filled the belly of the fish, has become the sign of Jesus dying for us and at the lowest point of his humbleness and obedience being raised again to glory. Throughout the history of the church people have expressed their experiences in prayers, in hymns and songs, in music and even works of art which can become so vital for the caring ministry to give voice to what is often so difficult to express.

Care of forgiveness

In church history there was a time when caring was emphasized more in a spiritual sense as the ministry of forgiving sins. We need to ask ourselves how important it is for us today when we can participate in Confession and Holy Communion. Here loads of worry, anxiety and fear can be relieved by handing over our lives and by receiving the Lord into the presence of our lives.

With the expansion of Christianity in the time of missionary outreach, the caring ministry found new forms in the church. Not only mission stations with churches and dwellings were developed but also schools for the furthering of education, the ministry of visiting and inviting those who did not know Christ. Later hospitals were erected and a special ministry of compassion took care of the needy. In the times of colonialism and Apartheid, when discriminatory laws were being introduced, the church participated in the struggle for the victims.

However it is also part of our history that we as church have often neglected our basic duty of caring and are ourselves in need of care, forgiveness and reconciliation. The church itself is a “wounded healer” and can only take care of others in the knowledge that we are ourselves ‘a community of sinners who live only by the grace of God’ and need forgiveness continually.

Although many institutions have been taken over by the state or by non­governmental organisations (NGOs) the church still has a special place in the caring ministry. We do not have to compete with the expanding governmental or private health system with its many services in our country with its doctors and nurses, psychiatrist and psychologists, hospitals and clinics, mental and frail care institutions. It is however important to recognise that members of our congregations and churches are active in these caring communities and are supporting them.

Called to care

When the reformers discovered anew the priesthood of all believers they wanted to strengthen the households by letting the house-father or mothertake overthe priestly functions at home. We have expanded this to the congregation and church as a whole that not only at home in our families but also in the Bible – interest, or working groups we can be there for one another. The Golden Rule that we should “do to others as we expect them to do to us” calls us to participate and become active from our side and take initiative. It is not responsible behaviourfor us to expect the congregation to care for us, if we simply withdraw and do not care for others. It is therefore essential that we find or help to found a group, usually in our own congregation, in which we can feel at home and where we can share with and thereby care for one another.

We are called to rediscover the way in which God cares for us and how Jesus Christ responded to the challenges of his time. We are not charged to care for everybody but to give an ear to the one lonely person next to us, to invite one person we know who feels side-lined, to become a family friend for one who lives in a dysfunctional family, of accepting, without being judgemental, one person who has gone astray. To feed the hungry, to visit the sick, to start a support group for specific despondent people are not duties and responsibilities of world-wide organisations, but is a primary duty for every individual Christian; although it would be much easier to accomplish this in partnership with others and such initiatives should be supported. How many medical bills could be saved if we made more use of private confession, of sharing with another Christian our past hurts, of finding healing for our wounded lives, of carrying our load with one another? For that we need open ears, caring hearts, tongues that do not gossip,
hands that can touch, words that can speak the truth openly and yet also give comfort. May God make us a caring community.

Rev Georg Scriba [KZNCC Executive Member]
