    Safeguarding Children

    Safeguarding Children

    This week Boz Tchividjian & Shira Berkovits join me to discuss a heavy but needed subject: child protection from predators. We discuss the problems and offer some thoughts on how to fix them. Sadly, we did not have the time to go as long as I wanted to so I encourage everyone to buy the book. If you are a pastor, it should be a requirement. Period.
