Weekend Wisdom – Bishop Desmond Tutu

In a sermon Bishop Tutu preached in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, Ontario (quoted in God is not a Christian (Ed. John Allen. HarperCollins Publishers, 2010) page 56), he said this:

“there is an openess demonstrated by the arms of our Lord strung out on the cross as if to embrace the whole cosmos, because it was God’s intention to include, to bring all things to a unity, in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. There is nothing that must be left outside… Jesus did not say, “I, if I be lifted up, I will draw some.” Jesus said, “I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all, all, all, all, all” (John 12:32)… All, all are meant to be held in this incredible embrace that will not let us go. All.”
