We need to be more materialistic

Here’s a great quote from Rowan Williams on why our culture needs to be mo materialistic than it is.

It’s been said often enough but it bears repeating, that in some ways – so far from being a materialist culture, we are a culture that is resentful about material reality, hungry for anything and everything that distances us from the constraints of being a physical animal subject to temporal processes, to uncontrollable changes and to sheer accident.
