CILLIERS, Johan. Between separation and celebration: Perspectives on the ethical-political preaching of Desmond Tutu. STJ [online]. 2015, vol.1, n.1, pp.41-56. ISSN 2413-9467. http://dx.doi.org/10.17570/STJ.2015.v1n1.a2.
ABSTRACT Recognising the complexity of a pluralistic South African society, this article attempts to identify four ethical movements in preaching in the past, as well as the present. These movements are from silence to struggle, from separation to celebration, from lamenting to longing, and from shaming to playing. In this regard, cognisance is taken in particular of the sermons, speeches, and letters of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The paper concludes with a discussion of a classic South African film from 1976, entitled e'Lollipop.
