Archbishop of Canterbury supports Modem's work

"The work you do in bringing together perspectives on leadership and ethics from church and commerce is immensely valuable and I am grateful to you for developing these channels of communciation."

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Revd & Rt Hon. Justin Welby sent MODEM a letter of "warmest good wishes" for its 20th anniversary conference in 2013. He challenged MODEM to continue its work with a reflection on "the love of Christ urges us on..." from 2 Corinthians.

You can read the full letter in a special conference issue of MODEM Matters.
