Dr Tom Wright: 'The long failure of the enlightenment project'

The retiring Bishop of Durham, Dr Tom Wright, has called for a renewed focus on social mobility in the light of "the long failure of the enlightenment project".

Speaking to James Naughtie, he said that in an "increasingly religious age" we needed to find new ways of dealing with the way "human beings mess things up".

Umm ... I'm nut sure if we need "new ways of dealing with the way humans mess things up" or if we just need to resurrect the old ways, but I do believe that we do need to deal with this problem.

My home group and I read 2 Corinthians 10 last night. Some things in the study spoke to me.
