The Bishop of London on family values

For many countries, the disintegration of family and church life is as challenging a problem as hunger, warfare, and ill health. But there are encouraging signs that more and more people are awakening to the fact that these institutions are the main vehicles for communicating the moral and spiritual values that lead to solutions.

People are rediscovering the comfort and inspiration that lie in Bible passages such as this one: "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up" (Deut. 6:5-7).

Recently, the Bishop of London, the Right Reverend Richard Chartres, touched on these issues in an article he wrote for the international magazine For A Change, which is published in London. Here are some excerpts, which are used with permission:
