The ABC at the TUC

I attended the Beyond Crisis conference today, which was organised by the TUC and Guardian. The main speaker was the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. I thought his speech provided much food for thought, focusing on the need for virtue in the financial sector.

I have been impressed recently by the way Williams seems to take his constitutional role as Archbishop very seriously. By that I mean he is not just the figure of authority in the Church of England and head of the Anglican Communion. The Archbishop has a responsibility to oversee the United Kingdom in a spiritual sense; to be a national pastor. And I think Williams is doing just this.
