Child Sexual Abuse in the Faith Community
Airs: January 15, 17, 18, 19, 29, 31, February 1, 2
Child abuse in faith communities often make the news and paint churches in a poor light. But, what can faith communities do about the problem and prevent abuse before it starts? On Issues of Faith, Valerie Craig from You Have the Power and Tim Alexander from Smith Springs Church of Christ talk about the issue in churches and how a congregation can prepare for a tragic situation involving abuse. Valerie and Tim say that ignoring the problem won't prevent it from happening in your community.
You Have the Power is sponsoring a series of forums about child sexual abuse in the faith community. The currently scheduled ones are in the evening at the following dates and locations:
January 20 UNA Baptist Church
February 5 Hermitage Church of Christ
February 17 First Lutheran Nashville
March 19 Goodlettsville Church of Christ
