I think about this documentary about once a week.
But I'm touched by this topic twice a day.
Because on my sleepy, coffee-in-hand commute down one of Atlanta's biggest thoroughfares, I pass one. Two. Three. Four strip clubs. It's a dirty little nook, known around town for being "that" area.
"GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS" say the signs.
Sometimes I am switching lanes so fast--being the "Atlanta Driver" I use to roll my eyes over--that it doesn't hit me. Or I'm wound up in my little brownish-blonde headed thoughts. Other times? I lose it. I cry the whole way home. I just don't understand. Or actually, maybe we do understand exactly what it is like to be wrapped in stone-cold-steely chains...
So many of us are desperate for these women (and men) to meet Jesus, LOVE, and freedom. Chains be broken. I'm noticing this in my church family, as we're perched right around the corner from all this in a brand spankin' new building. The wheels are turning and the Spirit is moving on that street, I'll just have you know that. Something will happen there soon.
"I am so taken with Jesus and so convinced that abundance is in His wake alone
precisely because He has done so much to heal me."
- Beth Moore
But I just needed to make sure you'd seen that trailer. That you were aware of this very American issue.
