We at Dove’s Nest are thankful for this new resolution from Mennonite Church USA: Churchwide Statement on Sexual Abuse.
Mennonite Church USA delegates passed the resolution this summer at their churchwide convention in Kansas City. (Mennonite Church USA is the denomination from which Dove’s Nest grew out of in 2009.) We believe that a document like this is a significant first step in addressing the need for abuse prevention in church settings.
