The London Skyline

I heard someone observe the other day how the high rise buildings now being spawned in London overshadow the church towers and spires that were once such an important part of the London skyline.

Not only that, the voice went on to say, this reflects in a way the change of values in society, the importance now placed on the city as a financial centre and the decline in our faith and our spiritual values.
How very very sad - indeed worrying.

By coincidence I came across a video from Premier Christian Radio today - "Should bankers sign up to a moral code, like the doctors' Hippocratic Oath? TV historian Prof Niall Ferguson thinks so, and he's challenging bankers to get back to old-fashioned relationship-based banking." Do listen to it.
