Responding to Domestic Abuse
Domestic abuse in the homes of some well-known celebrities has been in the news in the last few months. But domestic violence is not a new thing and the church is not immune to this problem. At the next Pastor Praxis, church personnel will learn some practical ways to deal with domestic violence in the church.
