Responding to abuse allegations in seminaries and churches

We are all weary of abuse rocking our churches, seminaries and ministry organizations. Offences range from sexual abuse to bullying and harassment. Our guest Lydia Fawcett brings years of experience in social work and more recently in abuse prevention with the Mennonite Central Committee. She helps us understand what abuse looks like and feels like, and what a healthy culture in our faith communities looks like and feels like. Plus, if you grew up believing Bathsheba was the one in the wrong, you're in good company. You won't want to miss this conversation.
