The Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission (ERLC) is hosting their 2019 conference in Dallas, October 3-5, 2019, called the Caring Well Conference.
Join us in Dallas on October 3-5, 2019. The American church is facing an abuse crisis. Is your church doing all it can to be safe for survivors and safe from abuse? Churches should be a refuge for those who have experienced abuse. But, too often, survivors haven’t found the protection they deserve and the care they need from the church. Are you ready to join us in changing that?Source
I sent out the following tweet this morning because I was bothered by the sales tactics of “hurry and buy now, before the price goes up.” It screams business and $$, not what a responsible Christian organization would want to do to protect the vulnerable from sexual harm.
It looks like I erred about the rate doubling in the above tweet . . . but still.
Yes, I understand venues are expensive. But this makes no sense to me. Put donation boxes at the doors, but I have a problem with charging money to support an issue the SBC created by not having safeguards in place and holding abusers accountable, including cover-ups. This should be a gift to the Body of Christ – especially considering the complacency that we’ve seen for decades, and the harm already done.
