Ask Rowan Williams a question

Got a question for Rowan Williams? Maggi Dawn will be interviewing him (together with the Archbishop of York) in a special “interview for the blog-world.” So if you’ve got a question you’d like to ask, just tell Maggi.

I ‘d ask him if he has given any thought to Sharia law...

Oh, and does he subtly drop comments like “I was having lunch with Kim Fabricius the other day...” into conversations?

Ben Myers said...

C'mon, Aaron, admit it — you'd be dropping those hints too if you'd been lucky enough to have lunch with Kim Fabricius....

Jeez, guys, I just got up. I think I'll skip breakfast and go straight to lunch! Richard Hall of Connexions will be there. Any questions you'd like me to ask him?

By the way, last week I dined with George Pattison. I would have preferred George Hunsinger (en sarkos), but when you can't get Barth, one has to make do with Tillich.

hey Kim, I was George Pattison's Chaplain when he was Dean at King's College. I've always been a huge fan (and have always preferred Tillich to Barth...) May I have lunch with Kim Fabricius one day? :)

Hi Maggi,

Lunch would be great! And I promise to behave like Karl rather than Paul (who would surely have his hand on your leg under the table)!

But, hey, I'll have a word with my Anglican colleague Nigel John (who also knows GP from his days at Cambridge) about geting you to give a public lecture at the Theological Society here in Swansea - then we could make it dinner!

Oh, and all the best with your interview. You could ask Rowan if, in his Lambeth exile, he often longs for the promised land of the Welsh valleys - or even Newport! And assure him that some of us here await a literal second coming.

Speaking of Tillich and Barth: my friend Aaron (who started this discussion) also has a definite preference for Tillich over Barth. Which just goes to show that no one's perfect... ;-)

Oh, and speaking of name-dropping: in a conversation with Kim Fabricius, I once mentioned that I enjoy whiskey on ice. To which he replied: "I dare say you'll eventually move on to single malts (as one moves on, say, from Tillich to Barth) — and then the ice will have to go."

What better way to describe the relation between Tillich and Barth?

I've had lunch with Ben Myers which is nearly the same thing as having lunch with Barth.
