They call themselves “In Touch With Christ Christian Center” but that might be a misnomer. I’ll let you decide.
In an effort to raise awareness about something — they claim child abuse — this Cleveland congregation held a mock Casey Anthony trial.
I’m all for Mock Trials.
I’m married to the Mock Trial expert.
But listen, y’all, if this is the best effort we can make as Believers in dealing with the issue of child abuse, we have a head full of rocks.
Sure enough, though, the church picked a 12-person jury and the Reverend Una Keenon — a retired municipal court judge — oversaw the entire mock trial. Keenon reminded the jury that if they found Casey Anthony guilty, her life was at stake.
Reminding us lives are at stake is the job of a pastor, I reckon.
I’m just confused at how staging a mock trial helps prevent the murder of the next child.
What are some ways your church already is or could be addressing the issue of child abuse?
