The #MeToo movement has revealed sexual abuse and assault in every
sphere of society, including the church. But victims are routinely
ignored by fellow Christians who deny their accounts and fail to
bring accountability to the perpetrators. All too often, churches
have been complicit in protecting abusers, reinforcing patriarchal
power dynamics, and creating cultures of secrecy, shame, and
silence. Pastor and survivor Ruth Everhart shines a light on the
prevalence of sexual abuse and misconduct within faith communities.
She candidly discloses stories of how she and others have
experienced assault in church settings, highlighting the damage
done to individuals, families, and communities. Everhart offers
hope to survivors as she declares that God is present with the
violated and stands in solidarity with victims. Scriptural
narratives like those of Tamar and Bathsheba carry powerful
resonance in today's context, as do the accounts of Jesus'
interactions with women. God is at work in the midst of this #MeToo
moment to call the church to repentance and deliver us from
violence against the vulnerable.
