The “Me, Too” Wake-Up Call

TRIGGER WARNING: This sermon includes graphic descriptions of sexual abuse that may be disturbing.

The “Me, Too” movement has brought renewed attention to how widely sexual harassment and abuse have impacted people’s lives—most often (but not only) women. What does it take for those harmed to find their voice, name their experience, and call for redress? How can and should our spiritual communities help foster healing, accountability, and positive change? What does this moment open up for all of us?

Join us for a service on this topic, with music from Rochelle Rice and a sermon from Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, whose ground-breaking book “Proverbs of Ashes,” co-authored with Rita Nakashima Brock, addresses sexual abuse theologically and personally from a feminist perspective.
