Our 2013 packet theme is Stories of Hope and Restoration. This annual packet for Observing Domestic Violence Awareness includes resources that faith communities might find useful in worship, in your own work with victims and survivors of domestic violence, and in educating congregational members on how to be effective agents of hope, that may empower others toward restoration (and in doing so, be restored, themselves). We hope that you will use these resources in the month of October and throughout the year, working to Break The Silence around domestic violence.
