And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, "He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me."' And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Yohanes 1:14-17

Inkwan lalid├Ątu baal badahna adarrasaw !
On the 7th of January 2007, Rastafarians join Orthodox Christians in celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. A time to reflect on the birth of the Saviour. This year's observance of this feast are extra-special; this year according to the Ethiopian calendar is the last of the Millenium. 2000 years of the Lord's Mercy! ( just as dates in the European calendar are designated Anno Domini or Before Christ, the Ethiopian calendar uses A.M, Amete Meherit- the Year of Mercy)
Many Zimbabweans, of course, are totally unaware of this Feast. Still, the Father's mercy has been poured out on them. He favoured me to tell the people of Ophir about the birth of Christ, through an article that appeared in the Sunday Mirror. I would like to thank the editor of the Sunday Mirror for giving me the chance to make this aspect of the Rastafarian culture known.
The main reason for this post is to send greetings to all the wonderful people who have enriched my life, people I have met. Far too many to mention. However, it is my pleasure to make special mention of the lady Heather Osterman, who has also started her website.
