Whole School Community Jerusalema Dance
It has been a delight to watch the children join together as one with our school community to take part in the dance. It might surprise many, but Jerusalema is actually adapted from an old gospel hymn, entitled Jerusalem Ikhaya Lami (Jerusalem My Home). The original hymn reflects on this promise and hope. It expresses a prayerful longing for the New Jerusalem. The hymn describes a wondrous place of rest and salvation. There is no pain or sin. There are no more tears. The New Jerusalem is better than the Garden of Eden. For it is the permanent Promised Land, where our present wandering will end. The whole congregation of believers throughout the ages will be present. Together, these descriptions highlight the sheer beauty of the Christian hope. For the world, as we know it, is not the end. We await a better world. Jesus is preparing a place for us. Those who love him will live with him. Forever.
Jerusalema expresses the human longing for a better place, as a school community we hope for a better place for our children after this pandemic. We hope you enjoy our school community video. Thank you everyone for your efforts and contributions.
