Children's Sunday in Fiji
Every year on Palm Sunday, the children in Methodist churches in Fiji take over the pulpit,the choir - singing in four parts, the prayers, passing microphones to each other, learning their parts by heart, dressing in neat white dresses, shirts and grey sulus. Here are some photos of Children's Sunday at Naseakula village Labasa. I haven't heard of this custom in other places. Usually it's Christmas time when children perform an Advent or Christmas play and are noticeably upfront in the Australian churches.
