Growing crisis of domestic abuse in the church

Posted by Hannah at 10:11 PM

Therapist Unlimited Blog brought my attention to the story of Rev. Unnia Pettus, Ph.D.

For the full story LINK

After years of emotional and physical abuse behind closed doors, and both being seen as active Christians.......she tried to kill herself to escape.

I found another blog called Unity First that spoke about the book she wrote.

Article from the Washington Post about her had a quote:

"The fact of the matter is what happens in the broader community can happen within the body of Christ," said the Rev. Jonathan Weaver, pastor of Greater Mount Nebo African Methodist Episcopal Church. "The church is not a haven for saints, but a hospital. For the longest time, talking about domestic violence has been off-limits, but it is a vexing problem plaguing our community."

Here is a link to her book at Amazon
