“I am who I am, because of who we all are”


“Ubuntu is the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation.  It speaks about our inter-connectedness.  You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity”  Bishop Tutu

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity. (Psalms 133:1)  
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in                       perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:14)

“We can be fully human only in community, where we commit ourselves to the well being of one another and engage with one another fairly with God’s help. To be a part of UBUNTU, human beings are not defined by race, but rather by being created in God’s image to share in community with all God’s people”.

About Noelene

I am a child of God's. I am also a writer. Mother Teresa once said "I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world". My objective is to be one of God's love letters to the world. I can only achieve this through His grace at work in my life.
