  1. Dear Sir / Madam,

    I'm Eldwin, one of media & communication officer at Moral Fairground. We will have Fair@Square event on 2-4 December 2011 to promote and raise awareness of Fair Trade and Ethical Business in Australia. This event will be interactive and not only inspire but also show consumers how Fair Trade can make a difference - globally and in their daily lives.

    I hope that you would be able to help promoting this event by listing this even on your website and social media accounts. I am looking forward to hearing positive response from you. For more information, please fell free to email me or

    Kind Regards,


Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
