Archbishop of Canterbury on The Tsunami.

Every single random, accidental death is something that should upset a faith bound up with comfort and ready answers. Faced with the paralysing magnitude of a disaster like this, we naturally feel more deeply outraged – and also more deeply helpless. We can’t see how this is going to be dealt with, we can’t see how to make it better. We know, with a rather sick feeling, that we shall have to go on facing it and we can’t make it go away or make ourselves feel good.

Of course this makes us doubt God’s existence

there is a row brewing about the archbishop of Canterbury’s words on the matter of the Tsunami. So far I think he’s pretty spot on.
