With all its craziness, the Anglican Communion is a wonderful thing BECAUSE we get to hang out with the likes of Desmond Tutu and claim him as family.
The New York Times just did a piece on him that is filled with all the spark and delight as well as the deep hope that is in him. The article is HERE.
What a joy!
The picture of him, BTW, is also a wonder. Go and see.
I loved the last quote. The interviewer ( Deborah Solomon) asked,
"It sounds as if you’re still sermonizing."
and he responded,
"I wish I could shut up, but I can’t, and I won’t. "
