Looks like Tom Wright retired too early, since his successor Justin Welby, only in the position of Bishop of Durham for just over a year or so, has been selected to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury, as has been reported.  I know the crowd in Durham was pleased with his selection as bishop, so I imagine he will be liked as archbishop as well.  However, I’ve not heard word on what the dunelm crowd thinks of his actual work there.  I have high hopes that the Anglican Communion can stay together, and so I pray that +Welby, soon to be ++Welby, will be able to help the church navigate all its challenges.
