Abstract<strong>Understanding the life context of people as a prerequisite for pastoral guidance</strong><br /><br /> In this article the importance of the context in which contemporary people live is discussed. Megatrends like internasionalism, the search for sense in life, secularism, paradigm changes associated with postmodernism and the African context are discussed. The South African context is also discussed regarding issues like transformation, the morality crisis, change in systems of faith, pressure on families, violence and crime, withdrawal from public life, joblessness, poverty, a new culture of human rights and a need for a work ethic. The value of understanding the life context of people is discussed in order to guide them to serve Christ.
