end slavery now

http://www.thetruthisntsexy.com/

at journey we're learning that the unthinkable is happening right now. the use of human beings as slaves, in the world, in the united states, in austin. for sex. for labor. for warfare.
we feel god talking to us, calling us to make a stand on this issue.
on september 9 we're using our whole sunday morning thing to show the concert to end slavery. we're praying about becoming an "abolitionist church," where people trapped in slavery can come for safety and connections.

it's scary. and exciting. feels like the right kind of battle to fight in order to love our neighbors the way we want to be loved.

or, we could just have theological debates and work on being nicer christians.
