The Boundary Hunter Newsletter
What's the benefit to you to subscribe to The Boundary Hunter?
Ministry...unlike other professions that intervene in people's lives...is highly unregulated. Ministers have a tendency to think that "everything" they do is the definition of ministry.That's where we can help.
The Boundary Hunter helps develop personal due diligence about boundaries in ministry...which protects both minister and people.
It also helps to create new ministries based on solid definitions and procedures...which prevent boundary violations.
The Boundary Hunter gives you useful tips...techniques...and articles as ministers go about the business of bringing people closer to God.
Any other good reasons to subscribe?
An excellent reason why ministers need to be mindful of due diligence in their work is the threat posed by the legal profession.
A Google search for "lawyers sex abuse" brings back more than two million pages. Clicking on one reveals that attorneys are as vague and universal in their definition of sex abuse as ministers are in defining ministry.
Here is what one website has to say (www.hermanlaw/com)...
"Sexual abuse occurs in numerous forms and affects many types of victims. Consequently, sex abuse claims are extremely varied."
That is...sex abuse is anything someone wants it to be!!!
And sex abuse...however it is defined...is BIG business.
You probably already know that in 2007 one catholic archdiocese alone paid 660 million dollars! in sex abuse settlements. Several other dioceses have had to go into bankruptcy court.
When there is so much money available...and so many attorneys looking for sex abuse clients...and when sex abuse can mean anything from a simple touch or kiss or hug...to sexual violence...every minister...every church...is threatened.
The only reliable defense against complaints that lead to ministry meltdown...is for ministers to know when they are doing ministry...and when they are not. Because...
Most ministers who were dismissed from ministry for boundary violations actually thought they were doing ministry. Those they were supposedly helping thought differently. And...The accusation itself is the evidence.
So stay aware...supervise yourself...let us help you to think clearly about vague issues with our monthly articles...tips and techniques.
