To be honest, I want to write about this, to just write something to show we care.
I want to write something to share in the pain of the children robbed of innocence and life; and to share in the pain of the church, who in these crimes have so poorly reflected ‘the body of Christ’; a body that should express the mind of Christ and the heart of the Father on earth. I want to write; yet words fail me.
We live in a world where child abuse is all too common. I was one of many children who know this reality but my suffering was not at the hands of the church, but at the hands of the family who were responsible for ‘my care’.
