While we were in the Ondini Circuit we spent most weekdays at the KwaZamokuhle Diaconal Centre. Every week day chapel was held in a rondavel style building. Time varied, but it was usually at 8 a.m. You just had to be alert to see when the others were headed down the lane.
The building was small. When you added our 11 to the normal group it got quite cozy. Chapel was held in Zulu. We never really got the message of the readings unless we looked up the bible verses ourselves. The music was always good. You just grabbed a Zulu version of their hymn book and read along. Finding your note was by ear, and harmony was common so there were usually several notes to choose from.
After chapel there was always a line up of people to shake hands with (Zulu style) before heading off to work. It was a great way to start the day.
