A Call for Sermons
As emerging spiritual leaders, you play a pivotal role in actualizing a vision of families and communities free of
violence. At the training one sermon will be chosen to receive an award and to be read to the other participants at
the training.

Sermons should be typed, double-spaced manuscripts of oral sermons. Please keep your sermon to 7-15 minutes

         Address the issue of power and control in relationships
         Interpret religious texts referring to domination and submission
         Spread a message of hope and/or issue a “call to action”
         Make graceful use of inclusive language
