++Rowan to the ACC

“Did you so live in the experience of the Church, the Body of my Son, that a tormented world saw the possibility of hope and of joy?”

I frequently thank God for giving us Rowan as our Archbishop. If you go to Titusonenine here you’ll find the full text of his opening address to the Anglican Consultative Council meeting going on in Nottingham at the moment (scroll down to the third item). Good stuff – note especially the reference to Girard, a theologian I’m thinking about a lot at the moment, primarily through the medium of James Alison.
