This year’s Anglicans Ablaze held in Cape Town, South Africa, was an opportunity to explore and discuss various spiritual and social issues pertaining to the Anglican Church and the country as a whole including inequality and poverty. But it was the themes of education and leadership that formed a constant thread throughout the four days conference. The conference itself took place at a time of growing unrest and protests for free university education in some of South Africa’s notable universities which has prompted several institutions to temporarily close, just when students are preparing for end-of-term exams.
