On God, Community, and Mental Health, Lord Carey

Former Archbishop of Canterbury

Our communities are fragmented, so there is no natural support system for mental illness anymore, says Lord Carey. Instead, this former Archbishop of Canterbury supports ‘taking out pews’ to create 24-hour churches, functioning as community centres. Outspoken Carey, once leader of 70 million Anglicans worldwide, also supported the ordination of female priests. He was the first former archbishop to write an autobiography, saying he’s ‘familiar with the knocks of life.’
