A few years ago, I did a series on the blog on abuse & the church. Seems freshly relevant in light of recent news:

I am also struck with a feeling of incompleteness. We covered a lot of ground this week, and we told a lot of stories, but there are still many stories we didn’t tell—stories of human trafficking and sex slavery, stories of men abused by women, stories of redemption and reconciliation, stories of abuse on the mission field. Each story is unique, and each story is sacred. And so I hope the series has inspired you treat your own story, and the stories of others, as such. May we all be inspired to speak with more truth, more conviction, more care, and more bravery about this difficult topic, so that our awareness doesn’t end here, but continues to grow, until the day when all things are reconciled to the source of love, and the story of abuse is only a memory.
