UBUNTU

20160528_150312One of the most beautiful words in South Africa is the word UBUNTU.

Ubuntu means “human kindness” or “humanity to others” and is sometimes translated as “I am what I am because of who we all are”.

The word itself has its origins in several of the Bantu languages of Southern Africa.

It incorporates the feeling of togetherness – that no matter who we are we need to strive to live together in love.  This past Saturday I attended an Ubuntu Multicultural Concert at one of our local churches – Kenilworth Community Presbyterian Church.

The afternoon was one of true Ubuntu-ism as different cultures and churches joined together to celebrate and worship God.

As I sat and listened to God being given the glory in praise and poetry and music and dance I thought how much God must be enjoying Himself in church that afternoon!  Listening to His children enjoying and expressing their love for Him.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!  Psalm 133:1

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.
