Speaking of Faith: Domestic Violence Programs and The African American Church
Domestic Violence is a real concern among members of the Faith Community. The purpose of this DVD and companion readers guide is to show how some Church leaders are including it as part of their ministry and to explore how faith leaders and the church as a whole, can respond to how violence produces a crisis of Faith with victims of abuse. People turn to churches for help when domestic violence occurs. Faith leaders must be prepared to respond with useful and accurate information. These faith leaders believe that victims require guidance, safety, and support. They also believe that violent persons require confrontation, guidance, and an opportunity to change but not at the expense of the victim. These churches reach out to everyone and try to help everyone with a clear understanding of what help really means. Please review this video with an open heart and mind.
