Yesterday, I attended two meetings about using the film Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence to engage in conversations on ending gun violence.
Today, I signed a petition calling for common-sense measures to reduce gun violence in the U.S. We live in a culture of violence that perpetuates this terrible cycle of gun violence, poverty, and injustice. But our call, as Christians, is to be peacemakers. Join me in challenging our gun culture.
During this Lenten Season, Presbyterians we are joining other faith groups in prayerful engagement and direct action to reduce our culture of violence and to bring peace to our homes, streets, and public venues.
This petition, calling for common-sense federal measures to reduce gun violence, is one small piece of a larger strategy to address the culture of violence that pervades our nation.
As I move through Lent discipline, I have made this petition – signing it, circulating it, inviting my friends to sign it – one of your personal commitments.
Email a request for post cards of this petition for gathering signatures at churches and other community events.
See along the Trail.
