Teds joined me on a Diocesan Training Day all about Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking. Probably not the best subject matter for young bears to have to sit through but something we all in this day and age need to be aware off.
We had various speakers throughout the day explaining what the uncomfortable situation was in the world, UK and local society today and what was being done about it. We also had a speaker who had been through the whole unpleasant situation and told us what would have helped her been saved sooner.
We need to make sure we are a people and Church of welcome and – like Jesus told us in the parable of the Samaritan – do not just walk on by. At the least if you think something is just not right contact the helpline 08000121700
