Last year I had the privilege of meeting Archbishop Desmond Tutu when he came to bless the foundation stone of the new monastery at The Community of the Resurrection. I followed him around for the day taking photo’s of the occasion for both the community and college. It is rare to meet a person who can captivate everyone’s attention for a whole day. People hung on his every word as he explained how his relationship with God and his call to the priesthood led him to a position where he was able to push for restorative justice in South Africa. That unshakable belief that God created us all equal and the faith to work towards a society that values all is truly inspirational.
Happy birthday Desmond. Have a happy and fulfilling retirement from public life.
