Justice for children: What can we learn from the slave girl in New Testament Philippi?

GenevieveJamesImgSouth African theology professor, Dr. Genevieve James, in a challenging address to Christian missionaries about noticing and respecting the rights of children today, especially those living in bondage and oppression. Her talk is based on the story of the often-overlooked slave girl in the early Christian apostle Paul’s experiences in the city of Philippi. She is speaking at a conference in Thailand of the “4/14 Window Global Missions Movement,” which targets ministry to children between ages 4 and 14. Dr. James is Project Director of the Chance 2 Advance Programme at the University of South Africa, and recipient of a 2012 Woman of the Year award for her work.
