Church Times – Bishops rally behind Dr Williams as Conference starts

CONTRAST THIS WITH The Telegraph – Damian Thompson: The Anglican Bishop of Durham, N.T. Wright, twists the knife

THE Lambeth Conference opened this week in Canterbury on a rising tide of support for the Archbishop of Canterbury.

. . .

Bishops who were approached at random were universal in their praise of Dr Williams. The Bishop of Kurunegala, the Rt Revd Kumara Illangasinghe, described the Archbishop as “the right man, in the right job, for the right purpose, at the right time”.

The Rt Revd Kay Goldsworthy, the first female bishop in Australia, said that he was doing “a remarkably great job”. And the Bishop of Trinidad & Tobago, the Rt Revd Calvin Wendell Bess, described him as a “very capable leader”.
