Throughout the bible there is a call to justice in all trade - to having ‘just’ scales, and not cheating the poor.
Sadly our modern methods of trading often do not follow this principle, the scales tend to be weighted towards the rich nations,
and the farmers who grow the goods often get a very bad deal.
It is for this reason that our church became a Fairtrade Church some years ago and continues to support the Fairtrade movement.
As Christians it is an essential part of our worship to a just and loving God.
