The New Archbishop of Canterbury is …

Word from the BBC is that Bp Justin Welby of Durham is set to be the next Archbishop of Canterbury. CT is calling it before any official announcement. See commentary over at First Things as well.

He comes from the evangelical wing of the Church of England with a previous career in “big oil.”

God-speed to him, he has an enormous job, an impossible job I would say: Trying to keep the orthodox global south and the mostly heterodox west in one big happy Anglican family.

He pipped Bp John Sentamu who was obviously not the “white” man for the job (yes, I am a being a bit cynical).
