Second Thought

Looking again at news and commentary

The Daily Edition of Monitor Radio

Excerpts from an interview with Rev. Beyers Naudé on The Daily Edition of Monitor Radio, October 30, 1990.

[Rev. Mr. Naudé is a South African who began preaching against apartheid in the 1960s. He was shunned by his white congregation and banned by the government. Last October he was invited back to preach at the Dutch Reformed Church for the first time in twenty-seven years. About half of the worshipers at the service were black, mixed race, and Indian. On that occasion he said, "There's no bitterness in my heart."]

"[Reconciliation] depends upon one's faith and the depth of that faith, the willingness to believe in the promise which has been given that where you live in truth and in love and in openness and also without any bitterness, in some marvelous way it comes back to you at some stage of your life. This is, I think, what I have experienced.
