In with the New

THE piece on the Feast of the TEC-over by "high priest" Alan Birks (FE Focus November 24) was wonderful. However, like many prophets from Black Country chapels, he remains lost in the shadows of the Old Testment.

The New Testament advocates love for one's neighbour. Those in doubt as to what this means should heed the epistles of Paul.
