Abp Williams is quoted below from a speech he gave at the World Council of Churches meeting in Brazil back in February. He has just recently met with the “Windsor” bishops from The Episcopal Church and in private conversation repeated the sentiments.
“‘When we say we need each other I am not talking about money. I am talking about spiritual maturity. The enemy of spiritual maturity is that the spirit says we can do without. And that is not an idea of the Archbishop of Canterbury, it is an idea of St. Paul,’ he told delegates on Feb. 17.
‘We need each other. It is worth working at,’ Archbishop Williams stated.”
