A Poem for Fairtrade Fortnight






Creator God,
As I wheel my trolley at the supermarket – at a distance;
As I order online – at a distance;
As I receive my groceries on my doorstep – at a distance; be with me and help me.

Remind me that I am not distant from suppliers, farmers & producers – they are my close family & neighbours.
When I spend money be with me and help me
to see the marketplace as you see it
as wide as the world you love so much.

Be with us and help us
to share the markets we share
for all people.
As we live under your steady gaze,
so we can change, by your gracious love.
