 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________

The Better Hour is the story of a man who, inspired by faith, used his political and social influence to change the world for the better.

At the beginning of the 19th century, almost a third of the British economy depended on the trade of human beings.

William Wilberforce was determined to end this horrific practice, by persuading both Parliament and British society to abolish slavery in the British Empire.

This documentary explores the 20 year effort of william Wilberforce to lead the abolition of the British slave trade, a business that was key to the country's economic strength.

The film focuses on how strength of character is harnessed in the service of high and seemingly unattainable goals for society.

Character and community join together to bring into the world what the english poet William Cowper described as "the better hour."

The work highlights William Wilberforce's drive and love for humanity and reveals how he and his colleagues took up the cause of abolition of the slave trade at a time when the British economy depended upon slavery. _______________________________
