FAREWELL AFTER 40 YEARS OF SERVICE

On 17 September, a special tea was held in the College Head’s office to pay tribute to Balungile Petronela Majola, who has worked at St Anne’s for 40 years, the majority of the time as a Housekeeper in Mollie Stone. Balungile leaves the College at the end of September after four decades of service. She has seen many changes over the years and fondly remembers the renovation of Mollie Stone House as well as an electrician’s course that studied some years back. She plans to enjoy her retirement at her family home in the nearby village of Sweetwaters.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

One of the questions that Rev Susan has been asked in her Q & A series is what to do about lustful thoughts. She spoke openly to the girls and reassured them that it is natural to have these thoughts. She warned about the two traps we can all fall into and that we need to find a path between them. The first trap is believing that all expressions of sexuality are bad. This is not true, as God made us with a sexuality for good reason and purpose. The second trap is to believe all expressions of sexuality are good; this is also not true. She continued to guide the girls and give them practical steps to overcome issues and build a path forward.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

The Andrews girls took Chapel this morning and focussed on “Forgiveness” and that no one is perfect. We sometimes find it difficult to forgive others when they hurt us, but God commands us to do this as we ourselves have been forgiven by Him. They shared the story of Corrie ten Boom, who was able to forgive her tormentors in a German concentration camp where members of her family were killed, because she realised this was what God required of her. We should never withhold forgiveness. It is not an emotion or a feeling, but a choice, an act of the will that we make to let go of the hurt and pain inflicted by others. Only when we understand God’s forgiveness and love ourselves as God loves us, will we be able to freely forgive others.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

This morning in Chapel, Rev Susan gave a lesson on “Rosh Hashanah”, the Jewish New Year, that is being celebrated today. It is the first day of the Jewish year 5779 and began at sundown on Sunday, 9 September and will end at sundown on Tuesday, 11 September. In the Jewish faith, Rosh Hashanah (meaning “It is written”) signifies a time of healing of relationships, forgiveness and restoration. People of the Jewish faith believe that doing good deeds and giving to charity at this time will lead to a happy year ahead. Rev encouraged the girls to use chapel time as an opportunity for “shalom”, to bring mental well-being and inner peace. She reminded us that God is not a God who punishes; He is a loving God who longs for us to enjoy peace, wholeness and joy.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

In Chapel this morning Rev Susan followed on with the Q&A series. She responded to a question “is it wrong to say OMG”? This seems to be a phrase which is used frequently and without much thought about the meaning of it, or how it may offend some people to hear it used so flippantly. Reading from Psalm 113 vs 2-4, Rev looked at what Scripture says about God’s name. In the Old Testament, the Jewish people regarded God’s name to be so holy that they would not say it, and so they called God “Hashem”, meaning “The Name”. Jesus Himself taught us the Lord’s Prayer which says “Hallowed be thy Name”. Sometimes people use OMG out of habit, and we need to help each other to break bad habits, to heal and to grow so that we can be more like Jesus.
