Statement from Bishop Andrus on the death of Nelson Mandela

The world is saddened by the passing of Nelson Mandela. We have all been strengthened by the example of his compassion in the face of inhumanity, his perseverance, his clarity of vision, and his ability to smile and exhibit love under the most arduous conditions. We pray for the people of South Africa in losing their beloved Madiba. May he rest in peace.
