Transforming Our World of Faith: Attitudes About Sexual Harassment and Abuse

by Esther Mombo | July 31, 2012

The church in Africa has not been able to name and shame sexual harassment and abuse in society in general or in Christian families specifically. The silence has led to untold misery for sexual harassment survivors. In order for the church to remain credible in society, it must name and challenge sexual harassment, and must offer safe places for survivors of the same to find healing and wholeness. This session will analyze reasons for sexual harassment, examine why the church has largely remained silent, and bring to the forefront biblical teaching to address sexual harassment and abuse.
