Rowan Williams tries to make the best of it

Filed under: Anglican Angst — David Jenkins @ 6:22 pm

As the Anglican empire crumbles around him, Rowan Williams wants to “work together” with Rome to assist in its further dismemberment; the good news is that efforts towards “ecumenism” and “ARCIC” can continue unabated – not that anyone really cares.

Hats off to Rowan, though, for being able to say that this move by the Vatican should not “in any sense be seen as a commentary on Anglican problems”; not many could pull that off with a straight face.



  1. Never mind the words. Look at the body language. His twisting and hands give it away. He looks defeated and is trying to make the best of it. It makes my skin crawl.

  2. Where are all the prophetic woices in TEC and ACoC that never saw this coming?

  3. NEWS FLASH. Pope appoints Rowan Archbishop of the Gobi Desert. It was announced that this was a transitional move to acclimatize Mr. Williams for his next posting.
