The Archbishop of Wales Dr Barry Morgan has given his Christmas message for this year and says that we need to "build bridges, not walls."
It will be the Archbishop's last Christmas message before he retires next month.
In his message, Dr Barry Morgan says that 2016 has been an "extraordinary" year in which events such as civil war in Syria, the growing refugee crisis, the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump show we live in a "brutal, bloody, divided, torn world that seems at time to be out of control and unpredictable."
The Archbishop of Wales will be retiring next month after nearly 14 years at the helm of the Church in Wales and 24 years as a bishop.
Dr Barry Morgan will retire on his 70th birthday at the end of January 2017. He will also retire as Bishop of Llandaff and will continue his work and engagements in both roles as normal until then.
