Fr. Sam Sifelani: Another Hero Departs

One of the heroes of the creation care movement in southern Africa, Fr. Sam Sifelani died a few days ago in a freak auto accident. He was considered a giant among Green Anglicans, an energetic and effective outreach effort in the region. One of his friends wrote this on Facebook:

Today my heart is broken. We have lost a giant of the Green Anglicans Movement. Fr Sam you inspired so many. You had the biggest heart of anyone I know. A huge heart for God, for young people and for the Earth. Our prayers go out to Mai and your beautiful munchkins and to the baby twins.

May you rest in peace and your spirit live on in those you have inspired. We will honour you with our actions to make Mama Africa green as you dreamed.

Here is a memorial page with comments from those close to him.

Rest in peace, brother. Your work was not in vain.
