Dear Church, Watch this. And repent. Repent until every victim of our misogyny, our abuse, and our patriarchy is heard. Repent until it never happens again.

I think church leaders often don’t know what to do with the context. It’s complicated - to reconcile justice and protection for victims with forgiveness & redemption of perpetrators. It’s a lot easier to dismiss/vilify the woman than to really hear/understand and support her.

The Lord hears the cries of all who have been abused, silenced, threatened, and forgotten. His justice will come. We are all called to repent and show mercy but there must be real consequences for abuse like this inside the church.

In short- we must extend mercy and forgiveness and trust the Lord to judge. It’s not about vengeance. BUT we also must protect our flocks which does not allow those who take advantage of others to remain in positions where they can continue to do so.

This was really tough to watch. Hurts to see the victim suffering like she is.

This happens now, not just 20+ years ago. As a licensed therapist to female sexual assault survivors, I see firsthand how the church continues to add to these women’s pain, and it grieves me to continue to apologize for their behavior.

What a heartbreaking call to a truer, restorative repentance.

The reality is it wasn’t complicated, he broke the law and they sheltered him and continued to shelter him. Instead of protecting her, they allowed for the story to be twisted into their favour as though he and the church wasn’t responsible.

I agree 100%. This was a black & white situation (as are many). I should have been more clear. My comment was more a reflection on my personal experience & a broader problem w/in the church - when a situation is not as b&w. Thank you for the clarification/correction.
