This lecture discussed how the #MeToo movement demonstrates the global power imbalances between men and women not only in culture but also in the church. Will also consider how churches can prevent harassment and abuse today while learning from Christians through history who have advanced the Gospel, justice and the dignity of women and men created in God’s image.
