Protecting the Vulnerable in the Church: Situations of abuse generate a wide range of emotions—from outrage and a demand for justice, to fear, shame, and disbelief. It can be challenging to respond well. But when abuse is brought to our attention, we must work hard not to respond based on emotion or personal bias. We should act wisely, justly and deliberately. Doing so is not only a legal mandate, but also is a moral and biblical one as well. This session will explore ways the church can both prevent abuse and respond wisely when abuse takes place.
