TGIFx meets monthly on Saturday mornings specifically to discuss issues surrounding the difficult topic of race. TGIFx meets at participants' homes, at a different venue each month, and has a separate mailing list from the "normal" Friday morning TGIF.
To be placed on this list, send an email with subject "TGIFx" to discuss[at]tgif.org.za, and briefly introduce yourself with a sentence or two about you.
TGIF covers a wide range of topics including worldviews, ethics, leadership, popular culture and contemporary issues. In this, TGIF generally explores the truth & goodness of Biblical Christianity and its relevance to all of life and reality.
Although its origins are Christian, TGIF very much aims to be of benefit to people of all (or no) convictions. Everyone is welcome, entrance is free, and no prior booking is required.
If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please specify for which venue(s) you would like to receive information.
