As we work together to protect each other and our community from the coronavirus, we have cancelled the Christianity and #MeToo forum on March 27. We plan to reschedule it at a later date.
A movement was started more than 10 years ago to support victims of sexual abuse and to stand in solidarity against perpetrators of sexual violence. With the addition of the hashtag to “me too,” it virally catapulted this issue to a global stage.
Little known – and frequently overlooked today – is that Christianity sparked the moral revolution against sexual brutality in the ancient world. It is a sad irony that though Christianity launched a moral transformation that is embedded in our deepest modern ethical aspirations, the Church has tragically too often failed to confront these abuses. Though the Church has been slow to pick back up its own script, the gospel story offers unique resources to bring hope in our me too moment.
Join us – and invite a friend – to hear Dr. Karen Swallow Prior and Dr. Joshua Chatraw, two national speakers and leading authors, as they explore Christianity and #MeToo, offer resources for accountability and healing, and spur us on to seek the common good of our city together.
This event is brought to you by the Center for Public Christianity, a joint effort between Holy Trinity Anglican, Vintage, and Christ the King Presbyterian Churches.
