Christmas in Christ Chapel 2016
Ubuntu, Jesu: From the Cradle of Humankind to the Ends of the Earth
December 2 at 7:30 p.m., and December 3, and 4 at
3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The African notion of “Ubuntu” affirms that a person is a person through other people, or “I am because we are”. To proclaim “Ubuntu, Jesu” links the nativity narrative to all of life, with the “Cradle of Humankind” as both the birthplace of humanity in Africa and the manger of Jesus in Bethlehem. Christmas in Christ Chapel 2016, “Ubuntu, Jesu: From the Cradle of Humankind to the Ends of the Earth”, will celebrate unity by connecting the incarnation of Christ with the creation of humankind in Africa.
