Confronting Domestic Violence
Dallas » Though we live in a society where domestic violence is one of the leading causes of death among women, we can still take solace in the hope of salvation and the gift of eternal life because our all-powerful God does not wish to see His children suffer. Barbara Pettis, Dallas Living Waters Worship Center of Seventh-day Adventists church elder, shared those words at the church’s second annual Domestic Violence Emphasis Day. Pettis initiated the event to encourage those in the Dallas area suffering from domestic violence. The church joined other churches around the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists who set aside the fourth Sabbath in August as Domestic Abuse Awareness Sabbath.
