Archbishop of Canterbury: A tribute to Rowan Williams

From “Living well in ordinary time: A tribute to Rowan Williams” by Stanley Hauerwas:
 
"The hardest thing in the world is to be where we are," observes Rowan Williams in his Lent book, “Christ on Trial: How the Gospel Unsettles Our Judgment”.

Enigmatic though it may be, I think Williams's remark is one worth pondering if we are to negotiate faithfully the current challenges before church and world.

By reflecting on this remark, I hope to show why we were so fortunate over the past decade to have had Rowan Williams as our Archbishop of Canterbury. He is an extraordinary theologian whose work is an invaluable resource for helping the church "to be where we are."
