The ugliness of human trafficking

Our subject matter in our church today was heavy. We had a couple come in and talk to us about human trafficking.

I then see this article posted tonight. The U.S. is in the top 5 in human trafficking.

We probably have more people bound in sexual slavery in the U.S. today than we had numbers of slaves at the end of the Civil War. Add labor trafficking to that and it’s probably well beyond the number of slaves we freed at the end of the Civil War.

For someone to act and try to bring justice in this matter is simply overwhelming. But if the Church would act as a whole and see this matter as justice in the Kingdom of God… something significant COULD happen.

We need a new movement of William Wilberforces in our day.
