6:20am 24th December 2010
You should try to be a samaritan this Christmas.
The Archbishop of York is asking each of us to help those in need.
His message this year is that you never know when the shoe could be on the other foot.
Dr John Sentamu gave Minster FM this message for Christmas:
Dr John Sentamu also posted a Christmas message for visitors to YouTube asking people to value what is important at Christmas.
Dr John Sentamu says:
“Thank you for taking the time to watch this short message.
We live in a virtual world where we have things like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter – all wonderful inventions that can help us communicate. But let us never forget that what is most important is having time for other people.
“When God created the world he said, ‘It is better to be God with human beings around’. We weren't created to be isolated individuals. Human beings were made to be a family, with God as our father, who loves us.
“And that's why at Christmas he sent his Son to live amongst us, to share our lives and to remind us about his love.
“We fill our lives with so many trivial things that we often fail to value what is important. Remember it is Christmas not ‘Stress-mas’! Take things slower and appreciate what God has given you.
“Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Year!”
