Domestic Violence:
The Faith Co m m un ity Responds, Nov. 17


FaithTrust Institute is a leading partner in the quest to educate and engage faith communities, including churches, in responding effectively to the life-threatening and often lethal scourge of domestic violence that afflicts family and community life in our nation.

Many churches are fearful or uncertain of how to address this universal but all-too-hidden problem. So they remain on the sidelines, doing little or nothing when their involvement is not only gravely needed but resonant with the call of Jesus Christ to save lives as well as souls.

At best, some churches may support local, residential shelters for victims of dom estic violence. But more can and must be done to educate members and neighbors of all ages about DV-how to help prevent it and how to respond to it.

The Eastern PA Conference's new Domestic Violence Committee will sponsor a learning and advocacy seminar on Saturday, Nov. 17, at West Lawn UMC in Reading, from 9 AM to 2 PM. The Rev. Lydia Mulkey from FaithTrust Institute will keynote the event and teach a workshop.
