Happy 80th Birthday Bishop Tutu

Happy 80th Birthday Bishop Tutu


Episcopal Café greets Archbishop Desmond Tutu on his 80th Birthday. Many happy returns to a person who makes us all proud to be Anglicans/Episcopalians. From Africa Media Online:

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, born 7 October 1931 was an outspoken opponent of apartheid and the first black archbishop of Cape Town. He received the Nobel Peace Prize on 16 October 1984. He is one of the fathers of the “Rainbow Nation” of South Africa.

Tutu is a member of The Elders where you can find more of his life and work.

Chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, The Elders is an independent group of global leaders who work together for peace and human rights. They were brought together in 2007 by Nelson Mandela, who is not an active member of the group but remains an Honorary Elder. The Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is also an Honorary Elder.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
