Simple or should that be Simples?
Today I went to church... a gorgeous little medieval church - the sort that Norfolk has lots of, and I mean LOTS! Its my lovely parish church that serves a whole variety of people - ages, backgrounds, outlook - all sorts!
The worship was good - all about Fairtrade but in particular, all about fairtrade tea. Its when you see the level of exploitation that you realise what we're doing in terms of imposing poverty.
Yes, its relatively easy to see that in terms of developing world but there is a more hidden exploitation in terms of the price the farmers pay in this country...
But lets not get too serious - though it really is "food" for thought!
The simple thing that made me smile - the churchyard was just a sea of snowdrops... Simples!
