Stephen Bates has written about the sermon preached at Southwark Cathedral by Njongonkulu Ndungane the Archbishop of Cape Town. You can read the sermon itself in full here. Please do read it all.
The comment piece is published under the headline Harvesting intolerance. It covers the sermon, but also several other current events. It’s also worth reading all the way through.
The BBC Sunday radio programme’s Jane Little also interviewed the archbishop:

Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane joins Jane in the studio.
