We hope you will catch something of that excitement and, as such, we’re inviting you to join us in prayer and fasting on 4 March 2008. ‘ For more information visit: http://www.bmsworldmission.org/section.aspx?id=28251

I am sure you will hear all about it with specific blogs in the future!
Fairtrade Fortnight begins today and runs for, guess what, 2 weeks! If you want to learn more visit http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/fortnight .
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
