In a time where large gatherings are no longer the norm, millions across Southern Africa are left without the solace of their usual church traditions, and Easter is one of the most revered of these in the traditional African churches. Dumisa heeded the call and is offering our viewers a dedicated Easter special that essentially brings an Easter service to our viewers. Get ready to experience Easter the way we know it.
Traditional African Christian churches of all denominations contemplate the Passion of Christ at Easter by reflecting on a devotion known as The Way of the Cross, or the Seven Words, which are the last seven expressions of Jesus Christ on the Cross as recorded in Scripture.
Mantswe a Supileng brings The Way of the Cross to life with pastors from seven different denominations preaching sermons based on these last seven expressions, while three full choirs lead in congregational worship. The special hosted pastors from ZCC, Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, URCSA, Apostolic (Pastola), the Anglican Church and Zion (Zayoni); and that in and of itself is a beautiful expression of unity across denominations. This theme of unity is further demonstrated when the roof is raised when voices from three choirs - including Lejwe la Motheo, a clap and tap choir; and Believers in Christ, a Zayoni choir - that will unite in celebration and praise in between sermons.
