Canon Ann Easter, Chief Executive Of A Charity gave us reason to Pause For Thought
Pause For Thought
From Canon Ann Easter, Chief Executive of a Charity and Chaplain to the Queen:
"I was brought up in east London, in pretty modest circumstances; sometimes money was a bit tight and we’d have sugar sandwiches for tea, and my parents made most of our clothes so shop-bought clothes grown out of by my older cousins were enthusiastically received.
So when I hear about the national debts of Greece, Italy and Spain, and America’s credit-rating being downgraded, talk of amounts which seem a bit long to dial let alone count, it all seems a very long way from my experience.
My experience, like that of most people in this country, is of prices going up and up, while income stays the same and we can become obsessed with the worry of it all. The often mis-quoted Biblical injunction that ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’ applies whether we have it or not.
But we can’t do without it. We live in a society based on financial exchange and we need to find a faithful way to live in it.
I like John Wesley’s suggestion that we should ‘Make all we can; save all we can and give all we can’.
There’s no shame in making a few quid – using our talents, strength and wit at work or in the community or maybe selling some stuff on the net – and while I’ve never been much of a piggy-bank saver (I soon learned the trick with the knife blade in the slot), saving, as in not wasting resources, things like re-using bags and recycling left-overs, is economical and green too.
And giving it away’s a good thing; it was fantastic to hear that, even in this economic climate, a huge amount of money has been raised to send to starving people in Africa.
In the end, I think God’s best pleased when we use money and love people, rather than love money and use people."
