Easter Sunday 2016 – Isaiah 65:22

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

Isaiah 65:22They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

While slavery in its formal application in our history has been technically abolished, slavery continues to be a reality for many in the world, including people in Memphis.  As an economic distribution center, people work in and pass through Memphis every day, and some are doing so against their will.

God of us all, open our eyes to the many ways people live in servitude in our community. Grant us the wisdom to make our city and this world safer and freer for all.  Amen.
