'The Sound of Freedom', a small-budget independent film about an agent who fights child trafficking, is the box office surprise of the summer, nearly beating out Indiana Jones. In this episode, Pam Cope, who fights child trafficking in real life, talks about what the work is like and how you can help. The Christian Chronicle's Erik Tryggestad interviews three leaders at Heritage Christian College in Ghana. If the future of Christian leadership in the world will be African, it's good to listen to those who are educating those leaders today. Buses are symbols of the struggle for equal rights in America. This summer, Dr. Jerry Taylor led Christians on a bus tour to congregations and cities significant to the American Civil Rights Movement. Will you get on board, too?
