Rowan Williams + the question mark = best friends forever
The archbishop of Canterbury [has] described his faith as a ‘silent waiting on the truth, pure sitting and breathing in the presence of the question mark’.
I regret to inform you that, as of today, you are no longer the co-holders of the award for Best Apophatic Theology Bullshit Artist.
You have both shown yourselves, time and time again, to be worthy of the title; however, Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury, has recently taken apophatic theology to new and glorious heights, and must be justly rewarded for his achievement.
If you would like to congratulate Archbishop Williams, you can find him on a park bench, sitting next to a large man dressed as a question mark, breathing and waiting for God.
Yours in the unknowable ineffable mysterious question that is God,
