Suzette Jones, development officer for the Clewer Initiative asks us to spare a thought and remember people of all ages, nationalities, and cultures, caught up in trafficking, slavery, and exploitation. Modern slavery is a harmful and hidden crime and its victims may be especially isolated and hidden from view during the coronavirus outbreak.
Please download the poster and display it in your church, hall, community centres etc. If one person is ‘seen’ or their voice ‘heard’ and given freedom, then it will be worth it.
A prayer for releasing Hidden Voices by the Rt Revd Dr Alistair Redfern
who sees the unseen and notices the unnoticed?
help each of us to hear the hidden voices of those
who pray for release from slavery and exploitation,
so that we may give ourselves more fully to the service of your saving love,
and be strengthened together as agents of your healing and hope,
through Jesus Christ,
who himself a came to serve as a slave,
so as to bring freedom and grace to all.
If we can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.
