The Candy Shop

Posted: July 8, 2011 in Gospel Compassion

Hey folks,

Pastor Ken floated me this video today. It addresses the growing problem of child sex trafficking. My hope is that the LORD would break our hearts over sin like this….and any sin for that matter (including our own). And not only that…I pray that we would be moved to action; that our brokeness over our own sin would end in repentance and obedience to the LORD and that our brokeness over the sin around us would move us to compassionately serve and take the gospel to the world.

Grace and peace…

Hassan

The Candy Shop is a film initiative to help fight against child sex trafficking.

This film is being made for the Doorpost Film Project, and with support from 12Stone® Church and Street Grace. The Candy Shop is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.

Up to 500 underaged girls a month are trafficked for sex here in our city of Atlanta.
It’s the number one city in the country for child sex trafficking..
The 10th in the world.

This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone® Church and StreetGrace want to put a stop to it.

This film represents the spearhead of a citywide and possibly a nationwide campaign.
It is not a documentary. It is not a PSA. It is the beginning of a movement.
