Sir: No one wants to sponsor the religion section of the Millennium Dome. I take this as heartening news that there are still limits on the commercialisation of life in Britain. But it could also be a strong indicator of the flaw in the materialist system to which our society adheres. We can deliver the goods, but are bankrupt spiritually.

An empty room for the Spirit Section would be perfect and potent symbol of the spiritual vacuity of our culture. No room for the Spirit would be an even stronger sign of how far we have progressed, especially as the calendar whose second millennium we are marking started with no room at the inn for the birth of Christ.
