In every church of every faith, victims, survivors and abusers are present at worship. Some are listening for words of recognition, understanding, comfort and healing- that the church stands with them and wants them to choose life. Others need to hear that they must turn away from violence, repent and seek to make reparations to those they have violated.
Join us Sunday, October 9 for a Domestic Violence Awareness Candlelight Vigil at 5:00PM. We can only heal if we are willing to confront the ugly realities of abuse.
“My heart is in anguish within me...It is not enemies who taunt me- I could bear that; it is not adversaries who deal insolently with me- I could hide from them. But it is you, my equal, my companion, my familiar friend....” Psalm 55:4, 12-13 (NRSV)
