I suppose I should edify and/or amuse my readers and have something witty or profound to say about the new Archbishop of Canterbury. But I just don’t. For Justin Welby has done nothing to either encourage or alarm me. So my attitude is more or less wait and see.
Now maybe that is because I have not been paying much attention. Or maybe it is because the Crown Commission was so deadlocked that an inoffensive pick was inevitable.
Nonetheless, I most certainly do pray God’s blessings and guidance upon him. Given the current state of the Church of England and of the Anglican Communion, he’s going to need them.
