Diakoniologie en rasionaliteit - ’n verkenning

By C. J. H. Venter


In this article the dimension of rationality in Diaconiology is investigated. With a short overview of the development of Diaconiology and Practical Theology as a starting point, nine rationality models are analysed in order to outline relevant data for a possible rationality model for Diaconiology. In line with this reflection and from an accepted paradigm of research, it is indicated that rationality in Diaconiology should he sought in the way Scripture, as part of reality, is utilized in diaconiological research, as well as in the empirical reality in which the ministry of reconciliation takes place in the church, the world and the kingdom of God. In conclusion, a definition of Diaconiology is aimed at. In this definition the varied aspects of rationality investigated in the line of argumentation are unified in a 'new’ frame
