It’s something we need to continue.“That challenge to the imagination is something that is constantly renewed and we need to be very reactive to it, and not allow ourselves to get bogged down in looking inward.”The archbishop’s comments are part of his interview in the second edition of Anglican World, a magazine that has been reporting on the life and mission of the Anglican Communion for several decades. Production was suspended in 2007, but it was relaunched in November 2012.Along with the feature on Archbishop Welby, the latest edition features articles on the 100th anniversary of the Anglican Diocese of Iran, a major youth conference in Central Africa, the commissioning of the Mothers’ Union’s new worldwide president, and the triennial ACC gathering of Anglicans from around the world, which was this time in Auckland, New Zealand.The full-color magazine is filled with pictures as well as links to videos of Anglican and Episcopal life from right around the globe.
