Old SAMS web pages
Zuze Banda, of the Missiology Department at the University of South Africa, asked me what had happened to the old web pages of the Southern African Missiological Society (SAMS), as he wanted to use some of their resources.
I’m posting part of my reply here in case other people also want to make use of those resources.
The old SAMS web site was hosted on Geocities, and closed when Yahoo! took over Geocities and then closed it down in October 2009.
The good news is that some people stepped in to save some of the good stuff that was on Geocities, and so you can now find the old SAMS web site in THREE different places on the Web. Unfortunately none of them can be updated, but the material there has been preserved. And anyway, I stopped updating it when the new SAMS web site started.
So you can find the old SAMS web site, and at least some of its resources here:
The old SAMS web pages contained some articles from past issues of Missionalia, the journal of the Southern African Missiological Society, and also some information about African Independent Churches, African Initiated Churches, African Instituted Churches and African Indigenous Churches (collectively referred to as AICs). There are also various other missional resources.
You can also see this information, and information about other missiological resources, on the Missiology page on this blog.
