Tutu inspires graduates to dream
Fri May 15, 2009
Adorned with a pair of squared-off sunglasses and a new blood-red sash from his honorary degree as a doctor of divinity, Archbishop Desmond Tutu addressed the class of 2009 Sunday morning in their final moments as students with a challenge to work as God’s collaborator. “God says, ‘please, please, help me. Help me to make this world a little more compassionate. Help me, please, help me to make this world a little more gentle,’” Tutu said.
