The Archbishop of Canterbury has recorded his New Year message. In the message, Dr Williams asks us to consider the importance placed on material wealth, to ‘turn outwards’ and appreciate the treasure that is our ‘fellow human beings’ during this time of financial crisis.
He encourages us to consider ‘treasure’ and question the importance placed on material wealth. “Jesus said that where our treasure is, there our hearts will be. Our hearts will be in a very bad way if they are focused only the state of our finances. They’ll be healthy if they’re capable of turning outwards – looking at the real treasure that is our fellow human beings”.
