A Conversation with Former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey

On Thursday November 8, 2012, the annual Common Ground Awards were presented at the Carnegie Institution for Science honoring accomplishments in conflict resolution, negotiation, community building and peace building. The Interfaith Award was presented to former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Cordoba Initiative, and Rabbi David Rosen of the American Jewish Committee. Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly managing editor Kim Lawton spoke with Carey, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, about global interfaith relations, divisions within the worldwide Anglican Communion, his hopes for the second Obama term, and his thoughts about the newly selected Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
