Happy Birthday, Madiba !
From prisoner to president, you continue to inspire us all !
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born during the First World War on July 18,
1918, at Mvezo on the banks of the winding Mbashe River,
also known as the Bashee.
« What a life, dear Madiba, each day filled with acts of love…
and acts of love call to birth constructive acts of love...
I thank you in my own name, because you teach me to love
to forgive… to live out compassion like our Yeshuah, dear Madiba
but above all you give me the strength to stand up and be counted
and keep doing what I believe is true: spread the Good News of Jesus concretely...
to day you are here… when you have gone beyond sorrows and heartaches…
when you have reached the goal … after the last mile of a long long
road to FREEDOM… stay still with us, walk with us… live with us
as we keep moving on along the bridges we build as we walk…
We love you Madiba, and as for me, Oh ! I love you so… »
Tutu said: "Thank you for teaching us to forgive. We thank you for your compassion.
Thank you for being a beacon of hope… »

today’s Mail and Guardian, which I thank)

Oh ! to be loved and to love
I know what it means to be loved.…
unconditionaly… I lived it in my body and in my soul
and so I know what the love of Yeshua does and means
to me and to you my brother, my sister… my friends...
Oh ! what a beautiful song when he plays with
his hands on my heart
that wealth of love, let me share it with you my friends
wherever I find you, in daylight or starlit night
we are created with no other purpose
but to love each other concretely
and say it, sing it play it…

In Zurich Airport today… I saw : the life experience, reducing to ashes
my faith and commitment for a better world : the Kingdom of God !
Institutions of any kind can’t bear the appearance of a prophet in their midst :
They better go !
they disturb our peace
they speak of Life and we have chosen peace, comfort and death
soft death… just for ourselves !
He came unto his own and his own received in not
"He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name."
They put him to death but he lives on, even today, here and now…
the time is running out… so let’s get to work with HIM !
