Shalom bayit (Hebrew: שְׁלוֹם בַּיִת; lit. peace of the home)
Tomorrow, I’m representing my church at a local domestic violence training course. The information they give you in preparation for it in heart-wrenching. There are so many victims to this needless crime, and too often the church is not only guilty of doing nothing to stop it and even, in some cases, actually enforcing the systemic sexism that feeds its root.
Please join with me in praying for our women, our men, our children, and our society; that we would work together to put a stop to DV’s destructive and dehumanizing cycle.
P. S. Below are a couple artistic approaches to raise awareness to the problem:
Don’t lay a hand or even an eye on her,
anything that aims to
rob her of her dignity
or steal away her life,
for she is most precious to God!!!
