- You know what you are supposed to do: ‘love kindness, do justice’ (Micah 6.8)
- ‘Defend the cause of the poor and needy’ (Jeremiah 22.16)
The Trussell Trust started in Salisbury 15 years ago and has about 1,500 food banks today, run by 40,000 volunteers. In 2014-15 they provided emergency food for over 1 million people. Two thirds of these only needed short-term intervention – these are not ‘scroungers’ they are people determined to get back on their feet.
What would God like our society to look like?
The Lord would like us all to have enough to live and enough to give.
Enough to buy our own child an ice cream, and buy a friend’s child an ice cream.
