Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby: This week in England, Justin Welby is enthroned as the new Archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader to nearly 80 million Anglicans around the world. Over the past decade, the Anglican Communion has been deeply divided over theology, gender and sexuality. In an exclusive interview, Welby spoke with managing editor Kim Lawton about his intention to make reconciliation a top priority during his tenure as archbishop. St Francis and the Pope - A visit to the Franciscan Monastery in northeast Washington, D.C., gives us a window into the life of St Francis, who wanted to walk in the very footsteps of Christ in everything he did. Fr. Larry Dunham, OFM, explains that St. Francis, whose name was taken by the newly-elected Pope, could see God not only in every man and woman, but in everything in creation---including the birds, the rocks and the fields. Dunham says Pope Francis's love for the poor reminds us that it was the poor that Jesus lived among and reached out to in particular. Desert Seder - According to Rabbi Jamie Korngold, the so-called "Adventure Rabbi, " it was when the ancient Israelites were wandering in the desert that God spoke to Moses and where the Jews got the teachings of the Torah. That is why she took a group into the Utah desert to experience the seder in the wilderness. This seder includes hiking and dancing, but also reading the story of the exodus directly from the Torah scroll, in a desert that one participant described as looking like the Negev, where the people once wandered.
