Each year, the third Sunday in September, Safe Church Ministry requests the churches to set aside some part of the worship service to focus on abuse awareness. In the past few years, we've focussed on abuse through bulletin inserts designed to draw attention to child abuse, domestic violence, and elderly abuse. If you are a church leader or church member reading this blog, what information about abuse would you like to see available? What is the best format to reach out to you or your church? If you have some ideas, I'd like to hear from you.
I'd also like to hear from you if you think Abuse Awareness could be re-styled in some way. Not everyone appreciates the worship service focussed around a theme, so perhaps you have other ideas for creating abuse awareness. I've got my ears on!
