Trying to think about life and how God makes it full

The Modern Abolitionists

Martin Wroe, a writer (and mate from theological college) has written an excellent article  here in The TimesOnline about modern day slavery, sex-trafficking, and the new abolitionists. Here’s a snippet:

“Fancy it?” asks one, a pair of long legs in fishnet stockings and suspenders lassoing male eyes. The small print was less beguiling: “Knowing that I was trafficked into London, sold to a brothel, put to work to pay off my ‘debt’, told they will beat me if I try to escape and that you’re one of 30 men I’ll have to service today. The truth isn’t sexy.”
