Iona Blessing

Bless Our Choices

God bless this food,
Locally grown,
produced in season.

God bless this food,
Fairly traded,
Giving new chances.
Bringing new life.

Forgive our demands
For cheap food that costs the earth,
for cash crops from subsistence land,
For strawberries in December (July for Oz)

Forgive our ignorance
Leading to hidden slaves,
Dangerous conditions,
child labour.

God bless our choices
That, like lights in the open,
They may reveal your will, your kin-dom
