Leeds Parish Church 15/08/2010Read the transcript for this service
A service following the traditional pattern of Morning Prayer. The service is led by the Rector, the Revd Canon Tony Bundock and the preacher, the Revd Professor Simon Robinson, Running Stream Professor of Applied and Professional Ethics at Leeds Metropolitan University. He reflects not just on ancient treasures, but our contemporary attitude to treasure and wealth and the business of making money.
