A Major Factor for Theological Education

It may sound strange to say, but I think a major factor for the future of theological education in the Anglican Church of Southern Africa was reported in the news this morning:

The World Bank says South Africa’s economy will expand 0.8% this year, down from a 1.3% forecast in April, and growth will rise to 1.0% in 2020 down from the bank’s April forecast of 1.7%. It said it made the cuts in its forecasts for South Africa due to the sharp slowdown in GDP growth in the first quarter of this year, low investor sentiment, and persistent policy uncertainty, including whether a solution could be found for state power firm Eskom.

How the church and institutions committed to theological education prepare for the future in light of these forecasts will be crucial.
