This was our contribution to the One Billion Rising Campaign held on the 14 February 2013.
Whilst our chaplain read out the scriptures, the women of SMMS interrupted …
We believe Jesus would want us to stand in solidarity with those who have been abused as a matter of priority. To do everything in our power to prevent it from happening in our families and in our communities. We lit a single candle to symbolise our commitment and then invited our brothers to light a candle too, to stand alongside us.
For the duration of Lent we will be observing Thursdays in Black and sharing stories of what it means to abuse and be abused.
