Heritage Day, Natchem's Way!

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

This Heritage Day is a day when we all come together as South Africans, in our cultural diverseness and uniqueness, to celebrate being South African in unity. Although we may have large differences in ethnicity, culture and creed, it is the one day we embrace each other’s individuality mutually, with openness and acceptance.

(inspired by Psalm 44)

What a heritage we have, O God.

Generations before us have experienced Your love,

and passed that knowledge to us.

Great-great-grandfathers and grandmothers

lived and prayed and sang their hymns to You.

Now I enjoy that rich legacy and acknowledge

the deep responsibility to pass it on once more.

Help me share Your truth with my children.

May they clearly see You

and feel Your presence in their hearts.

Let me use words and actions that lift You up

as the one who conquers all by Your holy name.

Enable me to teach my children

that only You bring lasting victory.

The world offers so many false heroes

who promise quick success or easy remedies.

May my children cherish the priceless gift of triumph

that’s theirs through Your dear Son’s death

and treasure all the more the faith You have given them.

When they fear defeat,

when others taunt their faith

or threaten to destroy them,

then, O God, remind them how You fought

for Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

and how You still redeem Your sons and daughters.

Rise up and help them in their time of need.

Let them know the force of Your unfailing love.

— written by Pamela J. Kennedy, based on Psalm 44.

“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and souls of its people.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Happy Heritage Day!!!!
