DENVER -- For the congregation at The Potter’s House of Denver, every Sunday is a time of reflection and celebration. Sunday, that combination reached a worldwide level.

It’s called “Letters from Robben Island,” a special tribute to the life and work of former South African President  Nelson Mandela.

The 7,000-member congregation is considered one of the largest multi-racial churches in the state.

Its pastor, Dr. Chris Hill, has spent extensive time in South Africa, even visiting the cell where Mandela was held for 27 years.

The Potter’s House of Denver is located at 9495 East Florida Ave.

Mandela died Thursday at age 95.
