Living God's Love Values - Generosity, Joy, Imagination and Courage

The Bishop of St Albans, the Rt Revd Dr Alan Smith, was present at the inauguration of the Most Revd Justin Welby as 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.??Speaking after the service, he said:??”Justin Welby?s inauguration on Thursday was a joyful occasion. His sermon hit a positive note about the Christian faith and the contribution that the churches are making to our nation and to the wider world. ??”However, in recent interviews he has also talked powerfully about facing suffering, not least when he and his wife lost a child. ??”I believe that this combination of faith and realism will mark his time as archbishop as he seeks to encourage the Christian church in this country to continue to make a real and significant contribution to our common life.”??Watch coverage of the inauguration on BBC iplayer
