September being youth month in the Anglican Church, St Peter's held a Career Sunday on the 12th, a Movie Night on the 17th, and a Youth Service yesterday on the 19th. It was a lively morning indeed, with energy and enthusiasm from the students and teenagers, and a stirring and engaging sermon from Nkosinathi Radebe - a gifted speaker who recognises where some young people's interests are centred, and with humour warned against the culture of nightclub weekends, 'Puza Thursday' and of coming to church expecting "not a reverend, but a DJ"!
Our rector though, almost made it as a DJ, encouraging the song, dance and drums before order was restored for the communion to begin. I think we all left the service feeling a little younger after that!
My apologies for not updating this blog regularly lately, I have been away and very busy with other projects, as everybody is - it was and is intended to be a community space so anyone who has news, photos or interest reports to contribute here, please let me know (Cathy). Thanks!
