Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 28-APR-2019 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Sandy Boyce
Easter 2 – "Break The Silence Sunday" – This fourth Sunday of April was set aside for Break the Silence Sunday, to open up a conversation about sexual assault and rape. These are subjects usually avoided by churches as too private and personal. The victims suffer fear, shame, disgrace and humiliation; it is one of the most unreported of serious offences; there is a lack of community understanding; and the justice system works against the victims. Christ still carried the scars from his cruel crucifixion when he rose from the dead, and he became the wounded healer. This sermon examines, at some depth, the question of how we, as a faith community and disciples of Christ, can respond to victims of sexual assault and rape and help them towards a healing.
John 20: 19-31
