“When I pray, coincidences happen, and when I don’t, they don’t. ” – William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, Church of England | Inspirational Quote
(University of Nottingham) Dr Frances Knight introduces William Temple (1881-1944), Archbishop of Canterbury (1942-44) who has been described as the spiritual father of the Welfare State.
A quintessential member of the Anglican establishment, Temple preached a gospel of social justice; and at a time when denominational in-fighting was common in Christianity he was an advocate of ecumenism and a founding figure behind the World Council of Churches.
