  1. I have written a book “Adult sexual abuse in religious institutions” No one is interested except libraries. I feel it addresses the Church from the perspective of available knowledge in the community. It is a change agent and the Church does not seem to want to change. I guess I am asking for the sacred / secular divide to cease so that the Churches may yet find integrity in this difficult matter. I have set up my web site so that people can access information. I had 600 hits last month- largely from NZ but also from all over the world.
