Did you know:
- that nearly 1 in 4 American women between the ages of 18 and 65 has experienced domestic violence?
- that 1 in 6 boys under 18 are abused?
- that every 45 seconds someone is sexually abused?
- that this year, 4000 women will die from abuse?
Domestic violence (including sexual abuse) is a clear manifestation of human sin at work in the most intimate of human relationships. It is a gross distortion of the covenant of love between married or unmarried partners, or the violation of a relationship of love, trust, and care between parents and children.
How do we as Christians respond to these statistics and more importantly to the people who are those statistics? How do we show the compassion of Christ to those who have suffered at the hands of those they trusted most? How do we share hope with those who need it most?
