Rowan Williams montage

Today is the Feast of George Herbert, and it was 8 years ago today that Rowan Williams was enthroned as the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury. I've recently been doing quite a bit of research on issues in the Anglican Communion, and I have learned one thing well that I did not expect to discover going into this: there are a lot of cool pictures of Rowan Williams out there. So, in commemoration of his assuming the See of Canterbury, I offer this, the first annual wardrobe Rowan Williams montage! Enjoy.

Kierkegaard on Love

I love Kierkegaard. This is from his Journals:

Here Luther is again completely right. No one can see faith; it is unseen: therefore no one can decide whether or not a man has faith. But faith shall be known by love. Now men have indeed wanted to make love into an unseen something, but against this Luther, together with Scriptures, would protest, for love is Christianly the works of love. It is really an un-Christian conception of love to say that it is a feeling and the like. This is the esthetic definition of love and therefore fits the erotic and everything of that nature. But Christianly love is: the works of love. The love of Christ was not inner feeling, a full heart, etc.; It was rather the work of love, which is his life.
