"Who are you and why do you request entry?"

BBC photo
I was so pleased to see that the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was greeted at the door of Canterbury Cathedral by a young woman, Evangeline Kanagasooriam, rather than the Dean or some other elder churchman, at the start of his inauguration service last week. I wouldn't want to call a 17-year-old a child, but it was certainly newsworthy to have such a young person given such an important role, which included asking the new Archbishop several challenging (scripted) questions.

(I have not found any copyright-free photo 
of this, so have included only a thumbnail. 
Another beautiful photo can be seen here.)


  1. Oh, that is beautiful! Thanks for posting this. We've had little news coverage here, so I wouldn't have known about it.

    1. :) Anglican news was probably overshadowed by Roman Catholic news last week!


Thanks for conversing with me about Godly Play®! I do moderate some comments for the sake of the children I write about. Please be polite: to quote the Velveteen Rabbi, Whatever you're going to say in response to my posts, consider whether it's the sort of thing you would say to your host or their children if you'd been invited to someone's home for tea. If it isn't, then please don't say it here.
