While we celebrated the beauty & mystery of Easter on Sunday, the season of Easter will continue for fifty days. We’ll spend the first few weeks of Easter in a worship series called The Art & Resurrection of Justice.
Outline for The Art & Resurrection of Justice
Read John 20.19-31. We will be holding this biblical text in conversation with human trafficking this Sunday. This will be a challenging topic for all of us. We will hold the ancient text and the reality of human trafficking as we look for signs of resurrection and new life amidst despair.

Many people doubt the reality of modern slavery and most of us turn away from seeing the wounds it inflicts upon children of God. A few years ago a group called Made in a Free World asked the world one question, “How Many Slaves Work For You?”. They received an overwhelming response from every country on the planet.

The Risen Christ says, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
How might God be sending you into the world to address the brutality of human trafficking? For what purpose are you being sent? To whom is God sending you? How might you be part of offering peace to children and adults caught up in the vicious cycle of human trafficking?
