Faith Moment Waiting in Faith 3

Transcript of audio:

Nelson Mandela is a good example of someone who waited in faith.  Mandela was committed to abolishing apartheid and its racism, poverty and inequality. His anti-government actions landed him in prison for 27 years where his convictions grew stronger as he waited for justice for black South Africans.

Released in 1990, he became the first black South African to hold the office of president, where he worked to foster racial reconciliation. He won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, and after his presidency focused on charitable work in fighting poverty and AIDS through the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Like the example of Nelson Mandela, this week's readings teach us about waiting in faith, looking forward with full confidence to what is good. While it is not always easy, in faith we can take heart that God's promise of an eventual eternal happiness will be fulfilled.
