Minute for Mission: Presbyterian Men

For this Father’s Day Mission Yearbook entry, I decided to rely heavily on one of the National Council of Presbyterian Men’s Bible Study Guides prepared by Presbyterian men for Presbyterian men. There are 24 of these study guides; 23 are based on books of the Bible and one on “Some Biblical Bases of a Brief Statement of Faith.” The guide used for this Minute for Mission, based on 1 Samuel, is titled “Fathers, Brothers, Friends, and Others: A Study of Male Relationships,” authored by H. Michael Brewer and edited by Curtis A. Miller. The other references also come from the study guide.

One of the prevailing ills in our society is domestic violence. Sometimes called “domestic abuse,” its victims can include spouses/partners, children, the elderly, or anyone within a household or family unit. And depending on the victim, the abuse may take various forms, including physical, verbal, sexual, psychological and economic. Victims also may be women or men, though the incidence is much greater among the former.
