Seminar: Preventing and Responding to Abuse

  • Church of the Good Shepherd 3741 Garrett Road Durham, NC, 27707 United States (map)

Sponsored by Hope Counseling Services in partnership with Christ Community Church

Situations of abuse generate a wide range of emotions—from outrage and a demand for justice, to fear, shame, and disbelief. It can be challenging to respond well. But when abuse is brought to our attention, we must work hard not to respond based on emotion or personal bias. We should act wisely, justly and deliberately. Doing so is not only a legal mandate, but also is a moral and biblical one as well. This seminar will explore ways the church can both prevent abuse and respond wisely when abuse takes place.

Julie Lowe will share from her personal and professional experience, and together discover how gospel-centered application, rather than formulas for the ideal family, equips us to be experts at knowing our own children so we can know Scripture and live it out personally in our homes.
