How does clergy sexual abuse keep happening?
Victim-advocate Melodie Bissell, who is also president of Plan to Protect, is currently working with victims connected with The Meeting House situation. Stories about clergy sexual abuse are so hard to hear and to bear. It's almost impossible to imagine what victim-survivors go through and the long journey toward healing. Melodie joins us, answering what she can, and helping us understand how these things happen and what can be done to prevent it.
Melodie joins Karen Stiller and co-host Ilana Reimer to answer some of the questions we are all struggling with and explore this very tough topic. In the end, we also hear what keeps Melodie going in this very difficult work. Where God is present, there is hope, beauty and the ever-present possibility of healing.
