"Our work is not worth anything to you" was the topic of the worship on March, 19 2017 in the German church in Amsterdam. Without the work of the seafarer our life is not possible - no car would drive, no mobile phone would be in our stores. A few cents more per product and their lives would be better: Fair wages and better social facilities (seaman's clubs or seaman's hotels) on land. It could be so simple.

Or they save human life. Quite naturally! They are at the right time in the right place in the Mediterranean Sea! Share what they have at accommodation and food until a safe port is reached. Did such a thing happen to us, our appreciation would be overwhelming.
