“We thank you for the inspiration and strength
That you have given to Madiba,
Enabling him, over so many years, to draw out the best in others,
rousing us always, by word and example,
to seek the highest good for every child of this nation.”
So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009
at the request of Graca Machel. This marked the start of an unusual relationship
between southern Africa’s Anglican leader and Mandela in his quietening years.
Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alex as the son of
a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and praying with Mandela. He shares his feelings
about his pastoral approach to the world icon, and how they influenced his
thinking on ministering to church and nation in the current era. What did praying
with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was his spirituality? In
trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa’s
spiritual make-up and life.
