The event will take place online via Zoom on Tuesday, May 5, 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Central time). Ngomane is author of the book “Everyday Ubuntu: Living Better Together the African Way,” which is the featured book for the ministry’s current online book discussion. Since early March, a group of people from churches across the US have been sharing in an online discussion of “Everyday Ubuntu” under the title #ConversationsTogether.

“She brings a very special perspective of Ubuntu which means ‘I am because we are’ and ‘people are people through others,’ and its meaning for our global and local contexts today,” said the invitation. “The granddaughter of Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Mungi Ngomane writes and engages conversation in Ubuntu's meaning especially in these times.”
