archbishop of Canterbury to meet with EP

Archbishop visit

The archbishop of Canterbury is due in Istanbul on Monday for a three-day visit to Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios, the patriarchate said yesterday. It will be Archbishop Rowan Williams’s first visit to Vartholomaios since he was appointed leader of the 77-million-member Anglican Communion in February. The two churchmen are to attend a meal on Monday, hosted by Turkey’s top Islamic cleric Ali Bardakoglu, to break a dawn-to-dusk fast held by Muslims during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Patriarchate said.

I just hope Patriarch Bartholomew doesn't kiss Rowan's ring!  ;)
El Señor es tu sombra a tu mano derecha." De día no te molestará el sol, ni de noche la luna. El Señor te guardará de todo mal; guardará tu alma;" guardará tus salidas y tus entradas desde ahora y por siempre. (Salmo 120)

Yeah that would not be good. I really do not see the point of this meeting though. I'm sure they will discuss the gay "Bishop" in the US. But no matter what comes away from the The ABC has no real power. He already condemned the actions in the US. Maybe something good will come out of it besides a press opportunity.
