Christians are called by Jesus to be the bearers of good news not only for humanity, but for the whole of creation, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, said today.
Some 3,000 Christians gathered today in Westminster for an ecumenical service before joining tens of thousands of campaigners in a march through London to call on the United Kingdom to take the lead at next week's United Nations climate change summit in Copenhagen, according to the Christian Today website.
Dr. Williams said, "We are to be bearers of good news for the world that God has made. Not for any one little bit of it, not any one community at the expense of others, not even for humanity at the expense of everything else in the universe. Good news for all creation."
The Archbishop added, "Our liberation is the world's liberation. Good news for us should be good news for the whole of God's world."
