very cool

Lia Scholl made the Freakonomics blog!

For those of you who haven't met Lia, she's an ordained Baptist minister who runs an amazing ministry to exotic dancers. I met her at current last year and heard her speak at the New Baptist Covenant in January. She and her fellow panelists made a compelling case for the need for people of faith to reach out to those working in the sex industry, as well as those who are affected by human trafficking.

Lia is a great example of someone who is following God's call in her life. Every day, she and her team at Starlight Ministries show God's unconditional love to young women who are on the margins of society. You can listen to a great NPR interview with Lia in which she does a great job explaining her work here.
