Today I had the wonderful experience – a gift really - of meeting Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams and of hearing him preach at the opening Eucharist of the Anglican Consultative Council gathering @ Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland. I’m very grateful to the friend who organised me a ticket (limited seating, so ticket entry only) in a prime spot, not more than 6 metres from where Williams sat, and from the pulpit where he preached on the text John 15: 17- 27.
