Worship resources support making change
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women urges us to acknowledge the various types of violence that is being inflicted upon women and girls around the world. The United Church of Christ is offering liturgical resources for the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women. For more on why the UCC is taking this stand read the latest article by Connie Larkman, Communications Strategist & News Director for the United Church of Christ.
“As COVID-19 cases tax health services, other essential services — like domestic violence shelters and help lines — are at capacity, U.N. research shows, noting that “more needs to be done to prioritize addressing violence against women in COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.”
It’s violence that will take a global collective effort to quash. That’s why the United Church of Christ is engaged in the Thursdays in Black campaign. It’s also why this year the UCC is offering liturgical resources for Thursday, Nov. 25, the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women.“
