2017 “Mutual By Design” CBE International Conference
This session explores the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing women survivors of domestic abuse can experience when they give voice to their stories of overcoming through faith. The Healing Voices book will be presented as a backdrop of the liberating power experienced by women survivors/victims of abuse when they give voice to their experiences. They then become legitimate agents of change to move themselves from a position of brokenness into ministry to other women through the sharing their stories.
Johnrice Newton is a contributing writer in CBE’s latest book, Created to Thrive: Cultivating Abuse-Free Faith Communities, which brings together experts and faith leaders to tackle topics related to abuse. Created to Thrive equips churches to respond wisely to reports of abuse and create safe spaces where all can flourish, and it explores the dangerous consequences of women’s devaluation and how theology can perpetuate abuse.
