It's not very on-topic. I really wanted to draw attention to the
splendid third paragraph, in which a senior clergyman is taken to a
supermarket for the first time (and is gobsmacked by the bounteousness
of the Lord).
I do wonder who it was. She used to live in Oxford. The present
Archbishop of Canterbury fits the description.
It might well be him, Rowan Williams. He seems to have lived and worked
in institutions in which he would be fed and watered and would not need
to go shopping:
He was educated at the state school Dynevor School in Swansea, at
Christ's College, Cambridge, where he studied theology, and at
Wadham College, Oxford, where he received his DPhil in 1975.
Williams lectured at the College of the Resurrection in Mirfield,
West Yorkshire for two years. In 1977 he returned to the University
of Cambridge to teach theology, first at Westcott House, having been
ordained deacon in Ely Cathedral that year and priest in 1978.
Professor and pastor
Unusually, he undertook no formal curacy until 1980 when he served
at St George's Chesterton until 1983, having been appointed as a
lecturer in divinity at the University of Cambridge. In 1984 he
became dean and chaplain of Clare College, Cambridge and, in 1986,
at the very young age of 36, he was appointed to the Lady Margaret
Professorship of Divinity at the University of Oxford and thus also
a residentiary canon of Christ Church.
