LONDON — Last week the Roman Catholic church got a new pope. This week the Church of England got a new archbishop of Canterbury.
Thursday's enthronement of Justin Welby as the 105th archbishop was slightly less grand than that of Francis. But that's the Anglican way: understated, like good British tailoring.
Pope Francis didn't have African drummers bring a bit of liveliness to the proceedings, but Archbishop Justin specifically added them to the ceremony to represent the time in his life when he was an oil company executive based in Nigeria.
