I love this document about the responsibility of the church to protect victims of sexual abuse, expose the wolves who abuse, and put systems in place that prevent further abuse.
That’s why I signed A Public Statement Concerning Sexual Abuse in the Church of Jesus Christ.
A huge thanks to G.R.A.C.E. (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) for their work on this. If you agree with the statement, please take a moment to sign it here.
I’m curious. Do you have a story to tell? How has the church been a blessing to you as you’ve healed from sexual abuse? How has it hindered you? What advice would you give to churches who want to empower, heal, and love victims well?
