Preparing for Urbana 15: Day Three

Urbana 15

Urbana 15 establishes Matthew 7 as the foundation for the next conference.

USA (MNN) – In the final section of our Preparing for Urbana 15 series, York Moore of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship discusses one of Urbana 15’s driving themes: social justice.

It’s tough to think about kids being exploited, especially since the crime is often kept secret for years. But that’s why people like Moore, and the team behind the Price of Life program, are speaking up.

“There’s something insidious about human trafficking.

“When we look at a child, we know that there’s something holy there. We know that there’s something sacred there,” notes Moore.

“And so, it’s beyond our imagination to think that we could commoditize a person for profit or for pleasure, that we could exploit somebody.”

“They care about the world, they care about the poor, they care about the exploited,” Moore observes.

“It seems like college students care about pretty much everything.”

As they plug Millennials into transformative solutions to social justice issues like human trafficking, InterVarsity staff also point college students to the only One with power to redeem social evils: Jesus Christ.
