CHRISTIAN RETAILING MAG has issued a shout out via facebook to the world’s Christian retailers to “sign the Christian Retailing Pledge and commit to the ministry of Christian resources”:
I believe in the power of Christian products to change lives. I believe I am called to be part of this ministry through Christian retailing. Times may have changed, but my calling has not. I believe that the body of Christ still needs strong Christian retailers. So I will not quit. I will not give up. I have faith. I will believe. I am willing to change to better meet the needs of my community, customers, employees and suppliers. I will help others to succeed. I will seek to honor my Lord in my business with the efforts of my hands, my heart, my staff, my store and my commitment to His Word. I love Christian retailing and I thank God for my calling.
If you’re up for it, head on over to facebook today and add your name to the list; and if, like me, you’re no longer a retailer yourself, head on over there and pledge your support as a customer — because without us as customers, the retailers’ pledges are in vain.
