Prepare, Respond, Reclaim: Gun Violence and Houses of Worship
October 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
It’s no longer if someone we know will be directly impacted by an act of gun violence, but when. Urban violence, domestic events, suicides, mass murder and accidents cause more than 100 gun deaths every day. Houses of worship must prepare for the potential of violence within their walls, respond compassionately to trauma in our communities and reclaim our communities as places of safety and sanctuary for all God’s children.
Pierre Thomas, Chief Justice Correspondent for ABC News, leads a multi-faceted discussion with faith leaders, community members and theologians. The evening will incorporate music, prayer, and reflection, sending those present forth with inspiration for our shared work.
