“Jesus did not say, ‘I, if I be lifted up, will draw some.’
Jesus said, ‘I, if I be lifted up, will draw all.’
All! All! All! All!
Black, white, yellow, rich, poor,
clever, not so clever,
beautiful, not so beautiful.
It’s one of the most radical things!
All, all, all belong.
Gay, lesbian, so-called straight. All!
All are meant to be held in this
incredible embrace that will not let us go.”
— Archbishop Desmond Tutu, from a sermon preached at All Saints Church, Pasadena, November 6, 2005
