Kyndall Rae Rothaus is doing great, courageous work! If you can make it to a conference where she is speaking or to her church then go. She has a gift for simultaneously speaking with strength and gentleness. Kyndall is the Senior Pastor at Lake Shore Baptist Church in Waco, TX. She is the author of Preacher Breath: Sermons and Essays by Kyndall Rae Rothaus. And I invited her on the show because I read some of the most powerful, practical, direct advice I’ve ever seen in her article“10 ways every church ought to combat sexual violence and domestic abuse.”
In the podcast we talked specifically about three of the ways every church ought to combat sexual violence and domestic abuse from her article. We read numbers two, three and six, listed below.
2. Name violence and assault in your prayers. (This includes a resource Kyndall gives permission to use and adapt available at strongwomenwrite.wordpress.com.)
3. Preach about rape.
6. Share your pulpit with women.
We’re grateful that this Truett Theological Seminary grad takes the time to speak at conferences, write articles and books, and let pastors interview her on podcasts. Thanks for the ways you are changing the world, Kyndall.
