Tandy uses her second lecture to outline her story and the genesis of her research into the restoration of social connections in the Gazelle Peninsula. She challenges indigenous researchers to develop their own authentic methodologies.
In the final lecture of the series, Tandy tries to envisage a new approach in theological education, that gives space to the students to explore topics related to sorcery, tribal conflicts, and other urgent societal issues at the community level.
This 'paradigm shift' can better equip students to minister effectively in their communities by understanding their social and cultural dynamics. Such an approach can give rise to an authentic redemption and validation of local culture, without endorsing the ungodly practices that may survive within it.
