Desmond Tutu has been garlanded with many laurels, including the Nobel Prize in 1984. This week, the former archbishop of Cape Town got an honour which in cash terms is worth even more: the Templeton Prize, amounting to £1.1m, which recognises people for “affirming life’s spiritual dimension”.
Jan Sutch Pickard is a Scottish poet, storyteller, spiritual leader and activist. She’s spent a lot of time at the Iona Community in western Scotland, a centre which blends Benedictine-style spirituality with a focus on justice and peace.
