religion at the weekend

From the British newspapers:

Geoffrey Rowell in The Times writes that The calendar of commercialism does not reflect our spiritual rhythms.

Andrew Brown in the Guardian asks, in an essay entitled Belief systems: Are we hardwired for religion, or is it just a psychological and social need?

Two columns deal with the forthcoming 350th anniversary of the “resettlement” of the Jews in England:
Guardian Geoffrey Alderman in the Face to Faith column; and
The Times Jonathan Romain The timeless question: consolidate or integrate?

In the Telegraph, Christopher Howse writes about Naming the birds of heaven.

As it is New Year’s Eve today, the papers have articles about the New Year, like these:
Ruth Gledhill in The Times Bishops resolve to fight the flab - and end world poverty (see more about this column here), while Jonathan Petre in yesterday’s Telegraph was more sombre.
