We are living in changing times. The power of the #metoo, #timesup, and #churchtoo movements are shedding light on abuse that has been happening for far too long. Behaviors and attitudes that have been given a pass in our culture are no longer going unseen. Women, men, boys and girls that have been abused are standing up and saying #enough.
Today in particular we are facing a situation in the US where a powerful man is being challenged on his behavior. Things that may have seemed like jokes or teasing, things that were done behind closed doors among cheering friends are no longer going unseen.
I just wanted to make sure to say to all of you out there who are being forced to relive your own abuse, we are listening. We believe you. We are praying for you, that you might find moments of peace and rest.
I’m sorry you have lived through these things. I’m sorry the world has been so hard on you. I’m sorry you were abused.
