Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who made Amazing Grace Sunday a resounding success. More than 5,000 churches in 50 states and 10 provinces joined together on February 18, 2007 to mark the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade by lifting their voices to sing the world's most popular hymn, John Newton's Amazing Grace. Our voices created a powerful reminder that there are still 27 million men, women, and children enslaved around the globe.
Thank you for your participation in Amazing Grace Sunday. Let us continue to pray for the end of slavery once and for all.
Now, many people dedicate themselves to education. Receive any profession and can always increase their degree.
Two hundred years ago, British politician William
Wilberforce and his band of loyal friends took on
the most powerful forces of their day to end the slave
trade. His mentor was John Newton, the slave-trader-turned-song-writer,
who wrote the worlds most popular hymn, Amazing
Grace. Today, the fight for freedom continues.
Join millions in singing Amazing Grace and
learning more about what we can do together to abolish
slavery once and for all.
