This is a special bumper edition of Missionalia! We are excited to close this year on such a high note and also opening up possibilities for the future.

The question is howwe are to respond to, or better read the signs of our times. This is not only relevant for the Southern African context, but for scholarship from the Global South at large. Hence, we are excited to be able to partner with and learn from colleagues in Brazil as we reflect on this response. But more about that later.
