But I was happy to find that certain of the ideas that I deal with in that book could be highly, highly compatible with these songs. I’ve got a few general areas that I’d love to explore a bit. I took that as one of the, if you like, one of the passages that set a motif for the whole of this narrative. Williams was previously Bishop of Monmouth and Archbishop of Wales (making him the … I entirely see that. It’s as if in this novel, the sense of the race issue, of racism itself, as a kind of foundational sin in American society — that’s allowed to come up in a very articulate way, and in a very in-your-face way sometimes. MR: Yes. Subscribe For the latest TV, art, films and book reviews subscribe for … Nonetheless, this person reaches for, grabs onto, a possibility of joy, which doesn’t seem to connect with any deserving, with any process, it’s just there.

His theologian wife, Jane, seven years his junior, and their grown-up children, have been part of the process. Rowan Williams: Theological Education Is for Everyone. And I’d be a damn fool if they weren’t.”. And I’ll begin with the most boringly obvious question, which I guess everybody will be asking, which is: when you wrote Gilead, did you envisage four books, or did that emerge as you got to know the characters, as you’ve listened to them? And is that still part of the picture when you talk about this radiant timelessness of the soul in the way you do there? It seems that that’s quite a substantial social factor at the moment, a contradiction in our collective minds. And, you know, it seems to me as if, in a circumstance where something is ambivalent, to overlook what might be the element of grace in it, is not respectful toward God, in a sense — that he makes the rain fall on the just and the unjust. And it’s to be held, to be touched, to be received. She married the Most Rev Rowan Williams in 1981, when he was a curate.

Deep divisions over the ordination of gay clergy have in effect caused a schism among the men in the Anglican communion and the debate is also affecting the women. RW: Yes, that idea of renewing the language is very powerful, because one of the tropes, I think, in the language of somebody like Martin Luther King, is, if you like, prophetic in that strictly Hebraic and Old Testament sense of prophetic recall to the language that the ambient society uses about itself at its best. But it’s like another, but entirely appropriate, vocabulary for experience, religious experience. And that insight that angels don’t know death, therefore somehow the resurrected human is a more astonishing thing than the angels — that’s a very powerful theme. RW: That’s a picture that corresponds to God and God’s creation, which again takes one right out of the register of duty and debt. It’s very hard, I think, in, I suppose, also an individualistic society where we think in terms of blame. MR: Yes. And a soul has no earthly qualities, no history among the things of this world, no guilt or injury or failure. The Wahs will not be sporting Birkin bags or Louboutin heels as they navigate the cobbled streets, but more likely will be singing, attending Eucharists and painting with an Ignitian influence. I learned actually, over time, that I had three-dimensional ideas of these people that were sufficiently robust for me to give them their own novels. And so, you know, why abandon them really? Many Wahs feel "bitter resentment" and "positively weighed down" by the expectations placed on them. And the other thing that came to my mind was, very different, again, but also from Swansea in South Wales, and that’s Dylan Thomas’s wonderful preface to his collected poems, where he tells the story of a West Wales farmer who still put out offerings for the fairies. In July, 1981, he married a writer and theologian Jane Williams with whom he has two children, a daughter named Rhiannon and a son named Pip. I was thinking of a couple of things from a rather different context, which to my mind illustrate the notion of respect. You remember the passage. And I read that as a very theological take on it, something very much to do with the fact that racism is not simply a problem of individuals with faulty perceptions. There are songs that thank God for difficulty, for making it hard. And I read that as another way into the same sense of mystery, and there, of course, connected very much with the strange way in which the uniqueness of this mystery, the heart of every person, is in fact bound up with physical memory — the remembered laugh — which is highly specific, highly material, and yet somehow not at the mercy of change and chance. … Sometimes I’ve suggested that if we want to understand what we mean by a “spiritual” perspective on ourselves or the world, we have to think of ourselves and whatever else we encounter as simply related to God before related to us, therefore in a dimension always inaccessible to us, which exists in that kind of primordial connection with the creative love of God. Williams, 51, is a mother of two, a lecturer, author and theologian. I do think of people as being beautifully individuated, the billions of us that there are, all of us distinct from one another and, you know, unpredictable in indescribable ways.

Wings are fine, and a kind of luminosity would be very nice, but to hear a familiar laugh would be an almost unbearable joy, a human joy exceeding anything seraphim could feel, since angels cannot know death. No more than a flame would have. Williams writes: "The church can be a thankless employer, with poor boundaries between private and public space, vague practices about holidays and days off, laughable job descriptions and few opportunities to congratulate oneself on a job well done and completed.". And the history of it, I mean, granting all the denial and suppression and all the rest of it, you simply can’t imagine American culture without granting the huge importance of African American culture, the impact on language, religion, music, virtually everything that you would call distinctively American. And there’s a way in which to speak of the African American population in this country as if the fact of the crime against them is the only thing that matters about them — I think that that’s a huge problem, that it’s an irony, that people who have had such a profound impact, to whom we go for the most important political language that we use in any serious argument about the nature of the country, and so on — the fact that [the crime against them] is primarily how they’re viewed is clearly a very misleading thing. That struck me, again, as a really poignant and searching thing, that when we attempt to discharge a duty to someone we never get as far as real respect, because respect has about it that sense of — well, of distance, actually, the right kind of distance, what Simone Weil wonderfully calls the hesitation we ought to feel on the threshold of somebody else.

MR: Yes. They stayed in my mind and they were very strongly characterized in my mind. It’s a great problem in a society, which, as is often said, is both very permissive and very judgmental at the moment, to try and disentangle the systemic underlying question, what I call the foundational sin question, from individuals being bad or being deliberately destructive. RW: Yes, I must say that I thought that that passage — if I wanted to start a theological seminar on resurrection, I might very well start with that bit.

I mean, part of the exclusion of African American acknowledgement is the fact that their very great importance and their very great value as salient essential original members of the culture somehow [gets] lost even among people who consider themselves sympathetic and informed.

Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene 2012-2020, has brought a very distinctive voice to the College: in the literal sense, of course - a voice which is immediately recognisable, humane, intelligent and generous, with a touch of the bard. And that’s tragic in a very strong sense, as I read it. And to see another person, or even to see any material thing in the world, in that light, as turned towards God before it’s turned towards us — that’s, in a sense, that’s the essence of the spiritual.
