how do we respond?

Scripture is filled with references to God as Defender of the vulnerable. But sometimes, the responses from churches when someone asks for help in an abuse situation do not seem to reflect His character.

Almost every week I spend some time reading articles on this blog. It’s eye-opening, and it’s also very painful. It’s hard to think about these things! But we really need to if we are going to understand some of the dynamics, and step up to truly protect those who are vulnerable.

The focus is broader than the safety of children, but it seems that many of the dynamics are the same in situations involving children.
