Chief Apostle M. Ngwenya and Tiisetso Makhubedu reflect on difficult, often taboo, practices which no longer make sense in the face of embracing a new faith that denounces such traditions. Among these topics are labia stretching from southern Africa, rites of passage for young Xhosa men, or the West African practice of wearing waist beads that is considered idol worship or witchcraft in other doctrines.
