What can finite beings say about an infinite God?

The spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Rowan Williams, strongly affirmed "we need the creeds and we need to have a place to stand." With respect to the Nicene Creed, he stated that "we can say, yes, this is how God has shown Himself and not be embarrassed about that." As if there was any fuzziness in his answer, he went on to state unequivocally: "when I say that the Savior is of one substance with the Father, I mean exactly what I say, and I believe it to be true and I believe my life depends on it." To one accustomed to hearing nuance and qualification from the Anglican communion of late, I am happy to hear this from the Archbishop.
