(SUMMIT NEWS) – Former Archbishop of Canterbury Sir Rowan Williams has compared Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg to biblical prophets. Yes, really.
During a discussion on the topic of living prophetically at the ecumenical Korsvei festival in Seljord, Norway, Williams spoke about Thunberg in terms that wouldn’t look out of place when describing Jesus Christ. “God has raised up a prophet in Greta Thunberg in a way that no one could predict. She has said things that no one else could have said. Thank God for her!”, he said.
Williams went on to compare Thunberg to Prophet Jeremiah, asserting that she had arrived as a force to speak to nations and represented “a very good example of a prophetic voice.”
