Archbishop Justin Welby: It starts with prayer

This week's Church Times carried a challenging quote from Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby:

There has never been a renewal of the Church in Western Europe without a renewal of prayer and the life of religious communities. Never. And if we want to see things changed, it starts with prayer.

Amen to that. And that's the motivation behind initiatives like the Contemplarium: to help people engage more meaningfully with prayer and the way of life experienced in religious communities. Nice to feel we might be on the cutting edge!
