Holy Week and Easter

Itís a rare treat for me to keep Holy Week, sitting with Roz in the congregation. Not that all our Holy Week experiences were in church...

The Robben Island prison, now a museum.

Nelson Mandelaís former cell.

Patrick, our guide, had been an inmate for twenty years.
He described how the African political prisoners had
subverted the brutal regime by insisting on treating
the warders with courtesy and respect.
It was a memorable day.

The museum to District 6, demolished under Apartheid.

King Protea.

Protea: national flower of South Africa, symbol of Resurrection.
