The day I first heard of the problem of sex trafficking in Atlanta stands etched in my memory. Round white tables surrounded by fellow church members. A screen down with a power point. A man sitting on a stool. The sun light glistening through the cracks in the blinds.
The problem hit my heart like a blade. My heart ached for the victims. I wanted to help. But I sit here years later not knowing much more than I did when I left my Sunday school room.
When Laura first shared about the One Dress idea I wondered if I could stand to wear one dress for a month or more, but then I realized that I needed and wanted a month of intentional reflection and studying about what's happening and what's been done to both prevent and stop this problem.
But I want this to be about more than just learning and understanding the plight better. I want to know what I can do... what my church can do... and I want to spread the word. I don't want to stop at discussing "the weight of the world" on this blog while children suffer caught up in sex trafficking. I pray instead that this blog help spread the word and opens the door for real change.
The link below is to a beautiful song that convicts my heart... Enjoy!
Thanks, Joy, for introducing it to me. Tell your friend that I'm indebted to him for sharing it with us.
