Pause For Thought
With Riazat Butt, Journalist and Broadcaster.
My brain hasn’t been working that quickly lately. I think this is because I’ve stepped out of the exciting world of journalism and now spend most of my time bimbling around London, cooing over exotic holiday offers and sitting at my kitchen table in my pajamas writing.
I wonder if it’s going to be the same for the Archbishop of Canterbury, who announced his retirement last Friday. When I heard the news I thought, typical. He saw me turn my back on a glittering career to return to academic life and he probably thought, well if she can do it so can I. I hope his new life at Cambridge, one of the best universities in the world, gives him the balance and happiness he deserves.
Since Rowan Williams said he was stepping down there’s been lots of discussion about what sort of man the next archbishop should be - it’ll be a man because we’re years away from having a lady one - and whether the country even needs an archbishop.
And of course the debate about religion in public life reared its noisy head. Again. It’s a row that’s rumbled on for years. If I had a pound for every time I’d heard that Britain was or wasn’t a Christian country I wouldn’t be sitting in my pajamas at my kitchen table, writing. I’d be on an exotic holiday all year round.
People like new beginnings because there’s an excitement and uncertainty about them. They represent a chance to do things differently, to do them better. This means Rowan Williams, me and quite possibly you.
The Bengali polymath Rabindranath Tagore said every child came with the message that God was not yet discouraged of man. I think this goes for change as well. Change doesn’t have to be scary, it can be a second chance.
