We continue our reflection on God’s call to us through the ELCA’s “60-Day Journey Toward Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence.”
DAY 33: ELCA Congregations Respond to Gun Violence
Those wielding guns can control communities with fear, but Lutherans are bringing peace back into their neighborhoods.
“Congregations respond to gun violence,” a November 2015 story from LIVING LUTHERAN, reveals how congregations in Cedar Rapids, Chicago, and Roseburg, Ore., reacted to acts of gun violence in their communities. Their responses, amid grieving and tragedy, involved members, neighbors, and other churches and organizations in bringing hope and healing to their communities and working together to end gun violence.
