enditnow EMPHASIS DAY
Launching an enditnow campaign will help your church draw awareness to the issue of abuse, promote collaboration with the community to develop solutions, and help your church become a safe place for everyone. The official enditnow emphasis day is the fourth Sabbath in August, but can be held on any date convenient for your church. Join us to help end abuse, create safe churches, and help victims.
August 27, 2022, "Abuse of Power"
The theme of this packet is “Abuse of Power.” This year we have again chosen to handle a topic that is too infrequently spoken about but one that is present in our church. How do those in power and leadership relate to church members? Many have had painful experiences that they may have never spoken about but that nonetheless need to be addressed. This is a sensitive topic, and we ask that in all we do and say that we do not make general statements about all people in power since this does not apply to all, only to some.
As usual we have given you a variety of information for your choosing. As a church leader you are free to add to or substitute material that pertains to your location. In this packet you will find a Sabbath worship sermon with PowerPoint presentation, children’s story, responsive reading (arranged from Romans 12 by the authors), seminar with PowerPoint presentation, and a handout for group activity in the seminar.
