A message to St James from ARocha
Fairtrade Fortnight is coming soon
Many farmers are trapped in a system that is unfair. They work hard to provide things we take for granted like coffee, tea and sugar, but they aren’t paid a fair wage. If we buy these products, we become part of the problem, but we can change this by choosing Fairtrade. Buying Fairtrade goods helps some of the poorest people on the planet, their communities, and the environment.
Love Creation is running a stall selling Fairtrade groceries and hand made cards (ideal for Mother’s Day and any occasion) after services at Gerrards Cross on 26th February and after the 11.15 service in Fulmer on 12th March.
If you would like to support this please bring cash or cheques as we can not take credit cards.
Autumn 2016 is the Season of Creation! The Archbishop of Canterbury has joined the Orthodox Patriarch and Pope Francis in asking Christians to use the time from 1st September to 4th October to focus attention on our call to care for creation. Around the globe, Christians will be praying and acting. In this season of beauty and abundance it is easy to appreciate the world around us but there is more to his request than thanksgiving. If you can, please find a minute (actually one minute and three seconds!) to watch the Archbishop’s message here:
To respond in practical ways, take a look at the article that Stephanie Summerell of the Love Creation team has written called ‘How to Live Sustainably’. It’s in the latest St James Magazine on pages 14-15. We’d like to hear what you think of it, and also collect any of your own tips that we can share with others. We now have an e-mail address so you can contact us with your thoughts and ideas: [email protected]
We’d love to have conversations about Loving God’s Creation and living in a way that supports this, so please let us know any ideas you might have on how we can achieve this. Better still join us – we’re a small team with lots of ideas and could do with some more pairs of hands!
