Churchmen frequently see fit to weigh into the affairs of Mammon - and why not, they have their sermons to write and they know what people are interested in. There are, after all, biblical precedents - and, let's face it, quite a lot to pontificate upon.
Watching the Beeb's rather good latest episode of 'Bankers', I was struck by the balanced contribution of our new Archbishop, Justin Welby, and minded to post about it here. Turning to i-player for the appropriate link, what do I find but himself as the frontispiece !
Not merely a talking head, it seems, but the talking head. How gratifying for the CofE.
Welby is an interesting cove, having worked for many years in the oil industry before the voice of God called him to the ministry. And now a financial commentator too.
He is welcome to write a guest post here any time he likes.
