Well, it looks as if I am not the only one beginning the blogging adventure. This week I discovered the blog of a very brave woman, a Christian sister, who has lived for decades with an abuser, someone she terms as the anti-husband. Write on, dear one. I, and my readers … such generous souls … are cheering your courage!
Sadly, I also came across the blog of another Christian sister, who went to her church for nurture, refuge and understanding, and was sent away ’empty.’
Over the past several years, many wonderful, caring churches have invited me to give workshops on domestic violence and sexual abuse. Even though the average pastor is still blissfully unaware of the reality that 1 in 3 women is emotionally, verbally, physically and/or sexually abused at the hands of her ‘Christian’ husband, the Jekyll & Hyde sociopath sitting next to her in the pew, there are a few brave pastors, male and female, who are starting to preach the subject from the pulpit. God bless them!
