Sermon, St George’s College, May 20 2010

The first event I did this year – in the New Year was at the headquarters of the Dalit Solidarity Network in Delhi in India. I sang and I spoke under a portrait of Dr B R Ambedkar.

Ambedkar was a most significant player in Indian politics; a Dalit who rose up to become the chair of those who put together the Indian Constitution.

On Christmas Eve I had stood at a Buddhist meditative centre dedicated to Ambedkar right opposite the Taj Mahal – over the Yamuna river.

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs

and then sings them without fear.

His voice comes through clearly,

challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,

needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.

Please God, it will help us

sing redemption songs of our own.
