ABC to take summer sabbatical

ABC to take summer sabbatical

Daily Mail:

The Archbishop of Canterbury will take a three-month sabbatical next year for ‘reflection, prayer, and spiritual renewal,’ Lambeth Palace has confirmed.

Justin Welby is expected to be away from May to July 2021, studying in either Cambridge or the United States. He will be examining the concept of reconciliation – one of the personal priorities of his ministry – during this time.

It sometimes surprises me that Priests & Bishops do not take more time off to reflect, recharge and renew one’s spiritual needs. They work tirelessly & we all need time to pause, relax, and redirect our energies. 3 months may not even be enough.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
