Roger Montgomery’s Christmas Message 2020
This Christmas I’d like to reflect on Community and Individualism. This year, I believe we have seen demonstrated, comprehensively, the failure of a society to deal with a crisis because the rights of the individual usurp the needs of the community. We want to be known for our individual accomplishments, for our abilities and at the extreme end of individualistic fame as highlighted by so much of social media – we simply want to be known for being known. Instead, we should be known for caring for others, for helping and for rescuing those in need. For putting others first and above ourselves.
