Did you know that there are more people are in slavery today than at any other time in human history, including all those seized from Africa during the four centuries of the trans-Atlantic slave-trade? The realities and the horror of modern day slavery, also known as human-trafficking has caused many around the world to take action. In partnership with our denomination, The Covenant Church in Cheboygan has taken on the cause of human-trafficking as a focus for our ministry and service during the year 2009.
Throughout the year we will learn more about this crime and what we can do to help in the modern day abolition movement.
A great place to begin learning more about human trafficking and what can be done is at this page on our denomination’s website: http://www.covchurch.org/humantrafficking.
Below is the Break the Chains video which is a powerful introduction. There is also an 8 minute version available at the website listed above.
