Example text

I close the discussion with concluding notes on self-care and thoughts about the work that lies ahead in pastoral theology’s discourse and practical responses to violence. 1 I Can Speak (the Unspeakable) for Myself The stories shared in this chapter are taken directly from transcripts of group and one-on-one interviews with six women, the chapter also includes excerpts from written narratives they provided.

He abused her and her sisters for about three years until an aunt caught wind of it and intervened: Okay. Where do I begin? I’m a sister of three other sisters. But, it was like three of us was three stair-steps. And being raised in the church all my life, a lot of people laugh at me because I always compare everything to sex.

As a little girl, I remember being molested by a man we call, on the outside, Uncle [name omitted], but at church, “Elder [last name omitted],” who is a minister (his wife was like our godmother).

I write about it, about them. Some of them I dissolve in the memory bank of my hurts. Some of them I forget for a long time in order not to allow them to continue to hurt me. My first I Can Speak (the Unspeakable) for Myself 33 book [name omitted] was published in [date omitted] because two brothers read the pieces and felt they were for all people. The [name of book omitted] are from the journals I kept over the years, and from them took pieces and made into a book of poems or expressions. ” I’m the firstborn child of 10 children, 5 boys and 5 girls.
