Did you know that my glorious home town of Ammanford was the first fair trade town in Wales?
Did you know that my amazing nation of Wales was the first fair trade nation in the world?!
Through out the Bible there is repeated teaching on the need for justice, loving our neighbour and being fair in trade. As Chrsitians I think we have a moral responsibility to use fairly traded products, I also think we have a spiritual responsibility to demonstrate the Kingdom by being the salt of earth and showing a different ethic.
So, what coffee do you drink and which banana’s do you eat?
I know I struggle with this… but should I make more of an effort? I think so.
Therefore, I have a plan to do my ‘bit’… and I am very excited about it!
I am going to make a banana (fair trade) split the size of the local shopping arcade, and invite all the local youth to bring a spoon and tuck in.
It’ll be a great way to make a stand and show where we stand on these things.
I think it’ll be a blast!
Anyone want to come?
