Here, in this next interview in our series we talk with Paul Milbank, a missionary and verger in the St. Helier Town Church.
He is a young man starting out on a “career” in the church and has already decided to reject life in the Jersey Finance world.
Of course, the St. Helier Church sits close-by all the institutional buildings and offices of Jersey’s own government and administration and the courts of justice. It is where almost all “official” services take place and so many of the decisions and actions of those with power are blessed or sanctioned “in the name of God.”
But, do we really mean it? Do people generally wear their faith like an overcoat and take it off at work or when it feels uncomfortable?
We at the Voice want to explore such issues but we need your comments to ensure a dialogue. Or, are you in fear for some reason, about expressing your views here?
