Dr. Diane Langberg,  Radiating God’s Compassion in the Midst of Sexual Trafficking and Trauma

God has called his people to come watch with him and enter into the suffering of others. He has made it clear that turning a blind eye or silence in the face of the anguish of others means to be complicit with the perpetrators of that suffering. In this presentation Dr. Langberg helps us to see some of the great sorrow of this world due to atrocities such as rape, child sexual abuse and trafficking. Stating that trauma is one of the primary mission fields of the 21st century, she calls us to look and see, reflecting the God who sees and then like him move into God’s groaning creation to serve as his body assuaging grief and healing wounds by the presence of his life in us.
