‘Refreshing’ Archbishop is Anglican of the Year

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has been named “Anglican of the Year” by members of the Church of England.

Dr Sentamu, the Ugandan-born Archbishop who won international plaudits after he cut up his clerical collar on live television in protest at the Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe, beat the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, into second place.

The third-most-popular Anglican among members of the General Synod, the Church’s “parliament”, was Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the former Archbishop of Cape Town.

More evidence of an epicenter shift. ABp Orombi stated the British hegemony is ending.

My #1 and #2 would be different, of course. But on the list we have before us, I have to reach #4 to see the name of someone I would even put on my own list! And Abp. Orombi would be at or near the top.

NancyNH, I’ll have to agree. And I would put ++Henry Luke right at the apex.

Why on earth do we have an “Anglican of the Year?”  What kind of ridiculous back-patting is this?
