The Problem with Neighbors: Dinah and the Boy Next Door
Today’s sermon is based on Genesis 34. The narrative centers on an act of sexual violence against Jacob’s daughter Dinah, his inaction in response to it, and the revenge his sons enact as a result. Due to this, we do not believe the sermon is appropriate for children up through middle-school. Additionally, if you have been a victim of sexual violence, you may want to consider whether or not to participate this week as a means of self-protection and care.
