Justice and Hope
Our goal for this conference is two-fold. First, to provide continued awareness and education on the topic of Human Trafficking. We intend to keep the issue on the forefront of people’s minds so they will continue to pray, advocate, and take action. Second, we’d like to continue to empower the body of Christ to engage and even lead in this fight against injustice. Our theme verse, Isaiah 61:8 says, “For I, the Lord, love justice.” If the Lord loves justice, so should we. Proverbs tells us to speak up for those who have no voice, and Proverbs 21:15 says” Justice is a joy to the Godly, but it terrifies evil doers.” If we can stir up the body of Christ to stand together and do their part, to use the platform God has given them, and to use the gifts and talents God has given them, we CAN make a difference.
This is where our word “HOPE” comes in. Many times people become overwhelmed at the evil in the world, and rather than stand up and fight, they feel they can’t make a difference. What can one person do, after all? They give up, turn the news off, and try to deny that the darkness exists by ignoring it. To quote another speaker I recently heard, “We need to move from feelings of shock and outrage to active engagement to end it!” There is HOPE to see an end to it; there is HOPE for the victims to be rescued and healed, there is HOPE that we can make a difference. God hears their pain and has chosen “Such a times as this” to use His people to make a difference in this fight! We always have HOPE in Jesus!
To end with a few more quotes, “Let’s fight to live in a world free from slavery; let’s bring dignity, love, and truth into the hopelessness of lives that are traumatized by exploitation and abuse.”
Let’s fight for the vulnerable, pray for those who are upholding rights, and connect our community to bring change and be changed! We refuse to abandon the least, the last, and the lost.
We challenge apathy with action! We believe that “doing justice” is a Biblical mandate… it is non-negotiable!
