The legacy that inspired the movie, Amazing Grace, lives on!

The new major motion picture Amazing Grace is making quite a stir among moviegoers-churchgoers since its release on February 23rd. This inspirational movie does a masterful job depicting British statesman William Wilberforce’s two-decade-long crusade to end the slave trade in England during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Now before you think slavery is a thing of the past, think again. Sadly, it is still a problem of worldwide epidemic proportions. But the good news is we have a new generation of stalwart crusaders of righteousness dedicated to turning this and other similar tides of evil. As author and speaker Kristin Wright describes in her recent Prison Fellowship article, the legacy of William Wilberforce lives on. In fact, as this writer has noticed, Wright herself could be regarded as one of those who possess the same sort of vigor and ideals that Wilberforce embodied, as she strives as an advocate for the persecuted Church around the world. You can learn more about Wright’s organization at www.standtoday.org.
