With support from the Greater Sauk County Community Foundation, Faith Leaders for Healthy Relationships in partnership with Hope House of South Central Wisconsin is hosting their 3rd workshop in their "Not In Our Church" 2012-2013 series. "Turn Mourning Into Dancing" will be held from 11:30am-1pm on March 5 at the Garden Party Cafe in Baraboo and repeated on March 7 at the House of Embers in Wisconsin Dells. The cost is $15. This workshop is based off of a policy statement and study guide from the Presbyterian Church (USA) on healing domestic violence. The objectives of this workshop include-understand the various forms and dynamics of domestic violence, identify Scriptures that are sometimes a hindrance to victims seeking help and an abuser's defense, recognize how domestic violence violates theological intentions, distinguish best practices for ministering to victims and to abusers, and learn how to become activie participants in healding and preventing domestic violence within churches.Registration is greatly appreciated a week in advance as we need to notify the restaurants. Payment at the door will be accepted if necessary. Please visit www.HopeHouseSCW.org for more information and to download the registration brochure.
