A Pentecost Homily from the newly appointed Archbishop of Canterbury
It was announced today that Bishop Welby has been appointed the Archbishop of Canterbury. As I got to know this truly remarkable and holy man I confess to hoping he would not get the job - the ultimate "meat grinder" in the Church. We Anglicans really don't deserve someone this good. But God in his goodness and mercy seldom gives us what we deserve.
In a recent conversation he referenced this sermon. In the sermon he describes his meeting with me and the Bishop of Virginia at HTB in May. I looked it up and now I share it with you dear reader. It is a window into the soul of a very fine Christian leader.
