Williams announces he will step down

As many expected he would do this year, Rowan Williams has announced earlier today that he will in fact step down as Archbishop of Canterbury and leader of the world's Anglican Christians at the end of the year. He will return to academia, becoming master of Magdalene College, Cambridge. Read the NPR story here. While some see the traditionalist bishop of London, Richard Chartres, as a potential successor others think it may be the evangelical archbishop of York, John Sentamu (who would then be the first black Archbishop of Canterbury).
