A Sermon by Bishop Justin Welby (new edition)

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.

  1. I'd love to hear the prayer the three of you prayed together in your meeting!
