This is lecture 1/4 from the conference held in spring of 2019 with Chalcedon Vice-president Martin Selbrede as the featured speaker. Although this conference was called "Domestic Abuse and the Church," it also focused attention on a wider range of abuses, particularly abuse by clergy and churches. Attendees came from five different states (Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, and Michigan) to learn more about these critical issues.
