Getting It Right

Letter to the Editors

What a breath of fresh air! I work for a domestic violence agency, and it is often so hard to combat the societal misnomers that tend to seep into so many pockets of our communities, including churches. Not only did Michelle D. Bernard’s “Naming the Sin” (December 2013) touch on such important realities of how women (and men) can be revictimized by the church, but the resources included were great! I passed this article on to my coworkers, and it was incredible to see their relieved responses that a Christian entity really “got it.” Thank you for speaking the truth and adding further steps toward recognition and healing for survivors and their families.
