Strings of Strength is a project to provide comfort items to survivors of sexual assault and violence who share their stories with the Break the Silence Sunday (BTSS) team. Since starting BTSS in 2015, Rev. Moira has had over 820 survivors share their stories with her. This year at General Synod, a resolution was passed to recognize Break the Silence Sunday once per year nationally throughout the denomination. Since then, Rev. Moira has started a project to create and collect items of comfort that she can pass out to survivors at the next General Synod, conference meeting, and wherever else she encounters those brave enough to speak up. Since our church was one of the first churches in the Pacific Northwest to adopt BTSS, I’m hoping we can continue to provide our support and build on our summer theme of creativity as spiritual practice!
