This has already been greatly used, as you are able to determine by the rolling back of the front few pages.:-)
One book listed in the program for this year is this one:
There are five categories for reading - Spiritual Growth, Leadership Development, Social Action, Education for Mission, and Nurturing for Community. This one is from the Social Action category.
I am writing this post today in an effort to call awareness to the problem of human trafficking. From the back cover of this book, compiled by Mary Frances Bowley, there are these words:
"Every year over 100,000 children in the United States are forced to do someone's sexual bidding. Most of them are between the ages of 9 and 19."
Sadly, each year, in the city hosting the Super Bowl, reported incidents of human trafficking reach a high level. Currently, groups of United Methodist Women across the United States are opening their umbrellas symbolically offering a "white umbrella of protection and purity over these girls on the road to restoration."
Brokenness surrounds us every day. As you read this book, you will be inspired to do something to bring wholeness to the world!
My wishes to you for a blessed week-end!
