Unwraveling the issues and letting us know how we can respond
After the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, people of faith yearned to respond. The horror highlighted that many children live with fear of guns every day. How can we understand the impact that gun violence has on our country? What can we do to change this culture of violence? What are the greater political and systemic issues that we ought to be aware of?
Derrick Weston and I invited J. Herbert Nelson on to God Complex Radio to discuss these issues. J. Herbert started the Liberation Community Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee. Now he serves as Director of the Office of Public Witness for the Presbyterian Church (USA). And while you're listening, we invite you to check out this petition, sign it, and distribute it.
