"If we could but recognize our common humanity, that we do belong together, that our destinies are bound up in one another's, that we can be free only together, that we can survive only together, then a glorious world would come into being where all of us lived harmoniously together as members of one family, the human family."- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Friends, Poets, Activists, Community Organizers, Faith Peeps!
What do you know of Archbishop Desmond Tutu?
What lessons might we draw from a post-apartheid South Africa and a present-day United States?
What does this Archbishop know of War? Of Peace? of Poverty? of Justice? Of enemies? Of making friends? Of healing and transforming a community? A world?Who are we to engage or participate in such questions? In such activities?
What am I being called to do?
These are some of my questions as I pray and work to do my part circulating information on Desmond Tutu's descent into the Twin Cities this upcoming weekend. (Thanks to Pam McBride at Youthrive and Roxanne at Metro State for this updated info!)
Please pass pertinent info along! I hope to see many of you there!
