No comments? I guess silence means universal assent that this is a good thing!

The accounts and photos of Archbishop Sentamu's enthronement are incredibly moving and heartening. Blessings on him, his ministry, and all in his care.

I wholeheartedly agree with your comment and prayers Anna, and am delighted - along with others - by Archbishop John Sentamu's installation. Anglicanism can still manage to get it right after all!

Also, a word of praise for Stephen Bates' report in the Guardian. To me at least, he seems to have succeeded most in putting into words that which sounds to have been almost impossible to fully convey in words.
