Thought of the month
"The world has been paying tribute to Nelson Mandela, who passed away at the age of 95 on 5 December 2013. Few people have left a legacy that includes a world changed for the better. Yet in Nelson Mandela we witnessed such a person. Through his fortitude, integrity and leadership, he was to bring about a transformation that has left an impact on the global population. And by his principled resistance to the iniquities of the apartheid system in South Africa, his imprisonment for more than a quarter of a century, and the grace and authority he exercised as his country's first black president, Mandela demonstrated the possibilities of a single human life.
Although he was always quick to resist attempts to portray him as a saint, many have described him as a godly man. For at the heart of Nelson Mandela's experience of life was a profound sensitivity to human moral frailty combined with a vision of what can be achieved through moral courage. These are attributes that speak of divine goodness. Yet, in his manifestation of humility, forgiveness and grace, perhaps we have learnt something more down to earth from this remarkable man."
