Sermon for 5 Pentecost Yr C

Read my sermon for June 19, 2016 here: 5 Pentecost Yr C

Cobalt mining, technology and Amnesty International

As a member of Amnesty International, I encourage you to view the above video, and, if the spirit moves you, to take action to ensure that companies like Apple do their research into how resources such as cobalt are mined. According to the video young people like “Charles” are exploited to mine for the cobalt needed for our technological devices such as iphones. The working conditions are poor, leading to serious health problems for some. The wages are also poor. Apple and other companies need to do their research into how resources such as cobalt are mined, and to ensure that workers producing such resources have proper working conditions and are paid an adequate living wage.
