Archbishop Phillip Aspinall's New Year Message 2021

“Jesus told us to love even our enemies and do good to them. Because we have choice, we could choose to spend time only with people who are like us. This year’s invitation, though, is to get to know people who are different to us; people who have different opinions and beliefs, different hopes and dreams, different priorities. Let’s understand better people we might not naturally welcome, and nurture relationships, friendships with them,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
