United Witness to the gospel in our society.

CANON PAUL AVIS, General Secretary of the Council for Christian Unity - Thu, Jan 20th 2011

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams met with Pope Benedict XVI at Lambeth Palace on Friday Pope Benedict has given the spiritual health of Britain a shot in the arm. The Pope's humility impressed many.

He succeeded in putting eternal truths in simple, attractive words which found an echo in the hearts of many non-churchgoers.

The personal rapport between the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Pope was moving. It pointed to the fact that there is massive symmetry in belief and worship between our two traditions.

As the Archbishop implied, despite obvious differences, there is much that we can do together in united witness to the gospel in our society.
