Gummer on morality
In it, John - now Lord - Gummer described where morality comes from as a deep understanding of being a 'steward'.
"Nothing in this world is mine. I have been given it. I havn't created it. I may have done things to it and therefore have a duty to look after it. To hand it on in a better condition than I received it. That I should be grateful to God for it. And that at the heart of my morality is ...a drive to 'do' things."
