The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that children are “not expendable” in a video address, as highlighted by Children Matter. He said, “What they think a real childhood is like, we all need to hear that, they know what they are missing, they know something of the privation that’s at the heart of their lives. They know what they need and we need to hear it.” The Church of England leader also used the address to call on the Government to give greater investment into the vulnerable children in society.

  1. thanks for the reminder …. it’s a book i keep going back to. I’m trying to restructure my days at the moment so there’s a good balance between admin/management, getting input (reading and prayer) and spending time with young people.
    It’s amazing how much time youth workers spend at their desks!

    1. I like the idea of the restructure, let us know how it goes, as our ministry grows I seem to spend more time being a manager than a minister which at times is fine but at other times seems to have missed the point.

  2. Tapped into your messages through your name being highlighted by a speaker coming to Houston, Texas (USA) that was impressed by you at the Lausanne Conference. As a pastor, I am impressed by your observations of the need to spend more quality time with the youth to build good relationships. It was my Dad’s dilemma as a pastor, and it certainly is & has been a challenge for me with my own children and the others we attempt to reach in the inner-city 3rd Ward area of Houston. Keep up the good work Chris. I will get the book. Pray for us here in America & my church–Houston Praise And Worship Center–in particular. We will pray for you. Blessings! Bishop/Atty. Frank A. Rush
