Many apologies for the delays in this weeks’ articles. My hands have been very full the past several weeks, with the death of my grandmother in early January, followed 20 days later by the death of my mother.
That said, I am happy to report that I’m regrouping, and hope to be caught up before Monday.
By the way, it bears noting that I am here today because my grandmother, pictured below, was the victim of church abuse. Raped by a trusted member of the church in her teens, she was forced to marry her rapist, and excommunicated as well. This happened despite the fact that she did not even fully understand what had happened to her.
Her experiences, as well as that of my grandfather, a prominent minister killed by the German government due to his consistent and vocal opposition to the Nazi party, wil be the subject of future posts.
