Read a quote by Archbishop Desmond Tutu this morning explaining the African concept of ubuntu and it’s been stirring in me all day:
“Ubuntu is the essence of being a person. It means that we are people through other people. We cannot be fully human alone. We are made for interdependence, we are made for family. When you have ubuntu, you embrace others. You are generous, compassionate. If the world had more ubuntu, we would not have war. We would not have this huge gap between the rich and the poor. You are rich so that you can make up what is lacking for others, You are powerful so that you can help the weak, just as a mother or father helps their children. This is God’s dream.”
Praying for a little more ubuntu in the world today.
