Om View from the Edge
Leslie Griffiths is one of the outstanding Christians of his generation. His story begins in real poverty in South Wales and leads him, via ordination, to Haiti to work with some of the poorest people on earth. He experienced Liberation Theology before it had been articulated and was the biographer of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the Roman Catholic priest and Liberation Theologian who became Haiti's President. At home, Leslie Griffiths is one of the very few people to have been elected President of the Methodist Conference whilst still a circuit minister. As minister of Wesley's Chapel, Tony Blair appointed him a working peer in the House of Lords. A writer and broadcaster, he was a long-time contributor to Thought for the Day. This is his remarkable story.
