When I look at the Lenten cross and the various elements it speaks to me of sacrifice and cost. Our salvation came at a cost – a cost to Christ. Everything comes at a cost.
Now I like shopping but I love a bargain. The question ‘How much does it cost?’ determines whether the item stays in the shop or comes home with me! Fairtrade Fortnight has just finished but I encourage you to continue to ‘Beware and Be Fair’. A lot of our ‘bargain’ produce comes at a cost to its producers as this clip powerfully shows.
