Right now, an estimated 40 million people are trapped in slavery around the world.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that we are not helpless.
We start with prayer, lament, learning, dialogue, and worship. We then move into community-based action, mobilizing churches to restore relationships, rebuild communities, and reframe harmful values to holistically transform society.
On Sunday, September 29th, we celebrated in Freedom Sunday!
Our local church body partners financially with the Set Free Movement, seeking to end modern slavery and create new futures. Ending slavery means transforming people and communities from the inside out, addressing the root causes of exploitation. This requires healing of brokenness at all levels: individuals, relationships, communities, and systems.
We need healthy communities where people can experience holistic freedom, not just freedom from injustice, but freedom for a greater purpose.
One very powerful way we all can engage in this battle for freedom is through prayer.
