The freedom of all the children of God

Today we celebrate the anti-slave campaigners, William Wilberforce, Olaudah Equiano and Thomas Clarkson. It’s today because it’s the anniversary of William Wilberforce’s death.

Campaigns against slavery, human trafficking and child labour continue, as do campaigns  for a living wage. They must. We pray this prayer;

God our deliverer, who sent your Son Jesus Christ to set your people free from the slavery of sin:
grant that, as your servants William Wilberforce, Olaudah Equiano and Thomas Clarkson toiled against the sin of slavery,
so we may bring compassion to all and work for the freedom of all the children of God, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

“No man is good enough to govern another man, without that other’s consent.” Abraham Lincoln
