Recycling jewellery and other 'stuff'

Flower NecklaceAt Exclaimers today we looked at the lectionary reading from John (the last part of Jesus's prayer in Gethsemane) in which Jesus prays for unity among his followers and we thought about some of the ways in which Christians who disagree on some things still work together on others, Christian Aid being an apt example: the notices this morning included the last call to join many church members on next week's sponsored walk or the mentally strenuous challenge of the Christian Aid quiz (entries £1).

The children then set up tables with the clutter donations people had brought in (at rather shorter notice than previous times so it was somewhat smaller). £44 was raised for Christian Aid and those donations that no one bought were taken to the Communicare shop so hopefully they will still be usefully re-used for another charity that church members are very much involved in. The jewellery items, however, went into our new recycling box for Traidcraft who are also taking mobile phones (in any condition) and old/foreign currency.
