A Christmas Message from the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Anglican Communion

Posted on: December 21, 2020 10:50 AM

When there is a year like the year that we have had, I am overwhelmed with emotion at belonging to the Anglican Communion. You are such dear and wonderful sisters and brothers in Christ.

We are all in such different places. There have been some common features: the economic downturn; Covid in many, many countries. The common feature in which I rejoice is that you and we have reached out to Jesus Christ and he has responded and the sign of that response has been the heroism, the strength, the brilliance of the way that so many of us have lived.

So as we come towards the end of this year, to Christmas and the New Year, my prayer is that God strengthens all of us to love one another, to love our neighbours and to carry the love of Christ into a world that more and more shows its need of the news of Salvation, of repentance, of change.

May God give you - in whatever circumstances you are - a wonderful Christmas. A Christmas in which you know his love. And may He protect you and guard you, and us, in unity and hope, in this coming year.
