Text Quotes
It’s a moral question  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Bad human communication leaves us less room to grow  (Rowan Williams Quotes) To help the poor to a capacity for action and liberty is something essential for one’s own health as well as theirs: there is a needful gift they have to offer which cannot be offered so long as they are confined by poverty.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Whether something is old-fashioned or not doesn’t resolve the question of whether it’s true or not. I can see the temptation of simply thinking, ‘Well, there’s a cultural mainstream which flows neatly in one direction. You just align with it’. And that really won’t do  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Let’s cut to the chase, the sharia controversy. I don’t think I, or my colleagues, predicted just how enormous the reaction would be. I failed to find the right words. I succeeded in confusing people. I’ve made mistakes - that’s probably one of them  (Rowan Williams Quotes) As the gospels present it to us, the mission of Jesus of Nazareth is about the way in which the community of God’s people - historically, the Jewish people who had first received the law and the covenant - is being re-created in relation to Jesus himself.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) It is impossible to deny that Christians and Muslims have a common agenda here: both faiths have at their heart the living image of a community raised up by God’s call to reveal to the world what God’s purpose is for humanity.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Economists are coming to acknowledge that measures of national wealth and poverty in terms strictly of average income tell you little that is significant of the health or viability of a society.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Religion has always been a matter of community building; a matter of building precisely those relations of compassion, fellow feeling and - I dare to use the word - inclusion, which would otherwise be absent from our societies.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) To conclude: good journalism is one of the models of good conversation and communication in the wider social context.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) At the end of the Middle Ages, nobody would ever have expected the monasteries to vanish from the scene within a generation - yet they did. Change does happen.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) And when the world is created, it is created in such a way that those eternal objects of God’s loving wisdom become actualities - interacting with one another, relating to God in the finite realm.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) I have to go on being a priest and bishop, that is, to celebrate God and what God has done in Jesus, and to offer in God’s name whatever I can discern of God’s perspective on the world around - something which involves both challenge and comfort.  (Rowan Williams Quotes) A public is a necessary fiction  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Well, today, the diocese is more than ever a microcosm  (Rowan Williams Quotes) I value unity because I believe we learn truth from each other in this process  (Rowan Williams Quotes) We shall not find life by refusing to let go of our precious, protected selves  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Truth makes love possible; love makes truth bearable  (Rowan Williams Quotes) The past is what the present is doing now  (Rowan Williams Quotes) It takes the whole church to know the whole truth  (Rowan Williams Quotes) How do we live in a way that shows an understanding that we genuinely live in a shared world, not one that simply belongs to us?  (Rowan Williams Quotes) We have only one global hegemonic power. It is not accumulating territory: it is trying to accumulate influence and control  (Rowan Williams Quotes) And when the world is created, it is created in such a way that those eternal objects of God’s loving wisdom become actualities - interacting with one another, relating to God in the finite realm  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Perhaps a good resolution for the new year would be to keep asking what world we want to pass on to the next generation. Indeed to ask whether we have a real and vivid sense of that next generation  (Rowan Williams Quotes) The planet should not be used as a warehouse of resources to serve humanity’s selfishness  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Friendship is something that creates equality and mutuality, not a reward for finding equality or a way of intensifying existing mutuality  (Rowan Williams Quotes) We must support government coercion over enforcing international protocols and speed limits on motorways if we want the global economy not to collapse and millions, billions of people to die  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Nobody... likes talking about enforceable international protocols and yet unless there is a real change in attitude, we have to contemplate those very unwelcome possibilities if we want the global economy not to collapse and millions, billions, of people to die  (Rowan Williams Quotes) Violence is not to be undertaken by private persons. If a state or administration acts without due and visible attention to agreed international process, it acts in a way analogous to a private person. It purports to be judge of its own interest  (Rowan Williams Quotes) A healthy human environment is one in which we try to make sense of our limits, of the accidents that can always befall us and the passage of time which inexorably changes us  (Rowan Williams Quotes)
