Last Sunday morning I woke to this view from my room in Crêt Bérard - a field of wheat with a pathway leading to the alps and lake Geneva. Today I wake to a view onto offices in central Liverpool as we begin a week's holiday in the UK, visiting family and relaxing. I also woke to news that Russia has banned exprt of wheat today ... financial speculation on a basic food stuff has been well underway in recent weeks.
And this morning's lectionary reading is Matthew 6:19 Do not store up riches on earth ...
Tell that to the bankers speculating with a "commodity" that represents life for many life.
Food for life or life for money?
