A coalition of anti-slavery groups are working together today to increase public awareness of slavery worldwide.
End it Movement, the coordinator of the Shine a Light on Slavery Day event, describes its mission to "be the generation to stand up for the 27 million men, women and children trapped in slavery around the world today."
Previous generations have also fought this fight. William Wilberforce led the efforts to ban the slave trade throughout the English empire in the 1800s. Wilberforce educated the public and challenged them, "You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”
Anti-Slavery Society reports on slavery in modern Africa: "The children are kidnapped or purchased for $20 - $70 each by slavers in poorer states, such as Benin and Togo, and sold into slavery in sex dens or as unpaid domestic servants for $350.00 each in wealthier oil-rich states, such as Nigeria and Gabon."

Welcome to the second day of live blogging R13, The Resurgence 2013 Conference.
Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, producers of The Bible TV series talk about making a movie about Jesus for theaters. Burnett says that the same character portraying Jesus made appearances in the Old Testament parts of the TV series. The voice of Jesus spoke to Moses.

Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, is hosting R13, the 2013 Resurgence Conference. The conference coincides with the release of Driscoll's book A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future? Live stream available here.
In his opening remarks Driscoll jokes about Reformed pastors' sermons being better than their churches' music and charismatic churches' music being better than their sermons. Driscoll also discusses "tribalism".
Driscoll introduces the next speaker, Dr. Crawford Loritts, the pastor of Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell, Georgia.
Loritts describes pastors that have been destroyed by pride and competition. Loritts challenges pastors to be who God called and created them to be. Loritts says that greatness is determined by faithfulness and that it eludes the person that pursues it.
