Identifying and Fighting Domestic Abuse within our Baptist Churches
There are victims of domestic violence even within our Baptist churches. It should not be but it happens. The workshop will aim to share different tools produced by Baptist Unions to cope with this tragedy. How do we talk about this issue for prevention to younger people, to engaged people, in preaching? How does the Bible relate these issues?
This workshop aims to increase awareness of this tragedy, share resources and make possible a networking of people involved in fighting against domestic abuse.
