All three sermons extend the message beyond naming the abuse of women to a discussion of what are we doing about it in our own faith communities. The two Protestant sermons draw on biblical stories to focus our attention not only on the truth of abuse and exploitation of women but also on the possibilities of healing and resistance. The Muslim presentation highlights the efforts of a young Imam to deepen the understanding of Islam for young adults and to apply important teachings to everyday relationships.
