PRE-CONVOCATION WORKSHOP
with The Rev. Dr. John de Gruchy
Being Led into Mystery in Life and Death”

My elder son, Steve, tragically died in a river accident on Sunday 21 February 2010.  He was 48 years old and, at the time of his death, a professor of theology at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal.  In the weeks and months that followed I sought the words to express my grief, and, at the same time, developed a dogged unwillingness to surrender hope.  I knew that the enemy of faith is not doubt, but an unwillingness to acknowledge doubt.  I had also learnt over the years that hope is not wishful thinking or optimism, but a question posed by faith in a world that gives so much cause for despair and lament.  Writing Led into Mystery was one of the ways I attempted to own my grief, to examine and express my faith and hope.  But it was also an experience of being led into this mystery which lies at the heart of all reality, a theological odyssey in which faith not only seeks to understand life and death, but journeys through them in company with others.
