From 1957 to about 1962, I taught Sunday School at St. Michael's Anglican Church, Rossburgh, Durban, Natal, South Africa.  From the time I was 9 years old, I attended St Michael's, walked barefoot three miles. The parish was very poor. Sometime in the first half of the 1960s, the financially unprofitable Church was closed, permanently.  As one of the Sunday School teachers, I felt it more important to involve the children in creating holy fun memories rather than in learning more and more and more about our religion. Our works-in-progress rehearsals were always wall-to-wall joys. Our 'finished' stagings were mainly for parish friends and families. Free. Sometimes nowadays, in retrospect, I feel fleeting moments of regret for having neglected our religion, in those fun-filled  poverty-stricken times.
