Trafficking 101 will take place via zoom on Saturday, March 5th from 10:00 to 12:00 pm. In our time together we will learn about trafficking here in the United States, unpack the difference between legalization and decriminalization of prostitution, and explore how the church can respond. Most people are unaware that 70% of women who enter the sex trade are girls who have aged out of foster care. Most are unaware that the average age of entry in the United States is 12-years-old. And, most are unaware at what they can do about it. In this training you will learn all this and more. This training is lead by Rev. Bonnie Gatchell. founder and director of Route One Ministry. Route One has reached women sexually exploited for more than 12 years. To find out more: www.lovedbyrouteone.org

People talk about issues of race and justice in the United States as issues of ‘justice and injustice.’ Sometimes we launch into debates about ‘the proper role of government.’ But that is not the original framework from which these issues were asked and debated.
The purpose of our discussion groups in A Long Repentance: Exploring Christian Mistakes About Race, Politics, and Justice in the United States is to show how these issues began as Christian heresies. Colonialism changed Christian beliefs and practices. Since Christians enacted and institutionalized these practices, we bear a unique responsibility for changing them. We must continue to resist the very heresies that earlier Christians put into motion. The journey is long and challenging. It may be impossible to see the end. But along the way, it is also inspiring and sometimes breathtaking.
