A friend of mine emailed me describing how impossible it has become to explain to people how they now believe ‘nothing’ but that this is at the same time ‘all’. My friend said they feel uncomfortable because it is unexplainable and diminished by the attempt to put it into words. Therefore, they think, they just won’t try to explain any more.
Each one of us can touch the inspirational core of our being, given time and space and loving care. Today, I look to those Primates able to bring that Christ-like presence to their meeting in Canterbury to inspire their brothers to stay in the room and hold fast to their calling to bring the same presence to the Church and to the world.
