This is Brazil – Christ the Redeemer
11:44 (GMT+2), Tue, 28 April 2015
You always remember your first or so they say… It was the first time Mother & I left the country together. Boarding a flight to Brazil, it still seems unreal. Majestic mountains, multitudes of people singing and dancing, delicious foreign cuisine, cosmic colourful beaches, and a kaleidoscope of people surrounding us is just the tip of what we experienced. For two weeks this felt like home. Communicating with hand gestures and traveling like tourists, with paper maps we navigated our way around São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. It rained for days on end but we were determined to see Christ. After several busses, trains and a shuttle from Ilha do Governador we finally arrived at Corcovado. As if that wasn’t enough we still had to walk up uncountable steps to reach the top of the mountain. The magnitude of the moment was too insurmountable to put into words. We were in total awe, soaking wet and speechless. At last! We met our Redeemer and what an encounter it was. The words of Isaiah 52:7 dawned upon me, How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him. The moment was larger than life itself just like the statue. The view was just as spectacular, picture perfect postcard quality. I waved the South African flag, our symbol of hope in front of Him who is our representation of peace, Mother even took a picture. A remarkable moment I wouldn’t mind to relive. Spiritually this was what I needed. To remind myself that God puts things into perspective. Cristo Redentor’s open arms welcomes people of all races, cultural backgrounds and continents. I was lucky enough to be one of those people.

With increasing urbanisation it is estimated that two million people will migrate to towns in the Western Cape, increasing the burden on resources, such as available land for housing. Are cemeteries reaching their "sell-by date"?
YES: The practice of cremation uses less space, freeing up land for other uses.

NO: The sanctity of a burial can never be trivialised, nor can the price of a piece of land be equated to the value of a life.
