Redemption Song: Global Slavery, Human Trafficking

January 6th, 2013 · No Comments

Dean Barham’s illustration of Hosea’s marriage during his lesson on 01/06/2013 and Scott Mayberry’s comments on redemption at the Memorial Meal got me remembering that The Woodmont Hills family tries to be rededemptive by supporting ministries like Tamar in India and with mission trips to Moldova and many other places.

The Christian Chronicle recently reported other efforts in pictures and there are other church fellowships with Campbell-Stone backgrounds involved in this area of outreach.

You might wonder Why should Christians care about human trafficking?

And you might want more background information to inform your prayers. One resource is C-SPAN’s recording of Siddharth Kara, a fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, who talked about modern day slavery and human trafficking. Topics in his presentation included slavery’s history and evolution, Mr. Kara’s experiences traveling around the world, and the forces contributing to contemporary global slave practices. He also commented on what the future holds and what individuals and groups can do to combat slavery. Mr. Kara is the author of two books on the subject, Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery and Bonded Labor: Tackling the System of Slavery in South Asia. This event was part of an annual international conference hosted by Yale University.
