Sharing of common sense and wisdom…

I would like to share this piece of story published in the TIME magazine recently, about his life and thoughts – Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Here’s Tutu spoke about a larger context of God’s love:

“The texture of our universe is one where there is no question at all but that good and laughter and justice will prevail.”  –  Archbishop Desmond Tutu

It is from that simple statement he makes, illustrates the meaning of human existence in the universe.  Achievement means nothing if there is no good deed, no laughter and no justice.

In summary, it reads in the TIME article, “Tutu’s secret. then, is no secret at all. It is faith…”

Archbishop Tutu retires on Oct 7.  That would be a relief for oppressors from Afghanistan to Zhimbabwe. But for millions of others, a world without Tutu would be a bit darker, a little more dull… his legacy will be his life and the story of how this pastor with a huge laugh from South Africa became our global guardian.
