Archbishop Rowan Williams Video on the Environment

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has recorded a short (2 minute) video expressing his concern for the environment. It is part of a Church of England programme to encourage people to sign up to an online Advent calendar for 2009 which will provide daily green challenges and thoughts about our planet. The video is posted on YouTube and can been seen here. You can also find it on this website where you can sign up to receive the electronic messages this coming Advent - a good way, perhaps, to help focus your prayers for the climate change summit in December in Copenhagen, COP 15.

“We hope for a world in which we have learned to live with the grain of things, to live patiently, to live respectfully, to live in a way that takes our environment seriously...” Archbishop Rowan Williams
