Social Action

2 ways the UK churches are making a difference:
PROTEST4Protest4.com has a meeting in London Oct 29-31.
Blurb: “Phil Lane, an international expert on human trafficking, will be there to help us explore human trafficking, by presenting the issues and facilitating discussion for action.” This is something set up by the emerging churches/ alt. worship churches in UK.

logo-1Fairtrade is another incredible way that the churches in Europe (esp. UK) have helped influenced the economic inequalities around the world. Fairtrade Labelling was created in the Netherlands in the late 1980s. Max Havelaar launched the first Fairtrade consumer guarantee label in 1986 on coffee sourced from Mexico. It is now all over the world, including USA.
