Kenosis Community

The Kenosis Community is a community founded in 1989 by a German couple and a Zulu woman in Bishopstowe, South Africa.  They had a vision for a Christian community within the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of South Africa.  To date, four nuns have joined the community and approximately 50 people live and work there.
