September meditation

Farming, cooking, carrying firewood: life was a constant struggle for Aster. Now she’s come together with women in her village, in Ethiopia, to open a shop powered by the sun. It's a thriving business and a resource for the community - it has sown the seeds of a better future. Stand together with our sisters and brothers in Ethiopia this Harvest, and give thanks for our global family, as we meditate on these words of the Harvest prayer.
