We have had a great summer exploring ways we can change our views on the people we meet and the things we see. Kristin Fuller from Outreach, Inc. encouraged us to view people as image-bearers of God. Lisa Thompson from The Salvation Army HQ opened our eyes to the role media plays in how we view people.
We have one event left this summer, and it promises to be a great wrap-up to the series!
August 25@7:00PM-9:00PM, Trinity Church (6151 Central Avenue)
Changing our views on: The Items We Buy
This interactive event promises to be one that could affect decisions you make on a daily basis. Believe it or not, the items we buy have an impact on the human trafficking industry! Many food, clothing, and household items we use each day are made by people who are not being given a fair wage or treated with fairness and dignity.
We want to share with you what we have learned about how to be an ethical shopper by showing you what companies you can trust, what products to stay away from, and how your purchasing power can impact lives across the globe!
A representative from Global Gifts will be sharing with us about Fair Trade, and there will be several booths for you to shop for ethically made products, so bring your wallet, too!
See you Saturday!
