So the government wants to relax the Sunday trading laws. Quite apart from Christian considerations there are good secular arguments for not doing so – e.g. shopworkers can have time with their families. But, no, extending Sunday trading hours would “generate more than £200m a year in extra income in the capital alone.” So, Mammon wins again. The only slight problem is that we don’t ultimately account to the god Mammon but to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. How will we explain to him that we had little or no time for him?
