More thoughts and reflections from Christians in the Caribbean for this year's Week of Prayer for Christian Unity...
"Human trafficking is modern day slavery. How should this be challenged and ended? In the parable of the Good Samaritan and in Paul's response to the slave Onesimus we see how transgressing social norms affirms the image of God in every individual, and thereby challenges those things that exclude people or hold them in chains. A united Christian voice is essential and unless Christians act together, modern day slavery will be too strong to resist.
"REFLECTION Not a daughter, but a dollar. Not a sister, but profit gained. Not a brother, but cheap labour. Not a family fleeing terror but a fortune to be made.
Captured by a web of lies. Snared by fear and manipulation. Seized by deceitful hands. Bound by broken promises. All dignity denied.
Heart hard, a commodity to exploit. Heart sore, a beloved child of God. Heart held in hope of liberation.
