First, a group of Episcopalian leaders and members held a demonstration of sorts yesterday amid Washington D. C.'s latest weather misery. Twenty-two bishops from around the country met with White House staff to discuss impending legislation to reduce gun violence. Then they led hundreds down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol in an observance of the Stations of the Cross.
Second, a reminder that not everyone in the church is on the same page when it comes to gun control. A group of pastors from Williston, North Dakota want the right to allow concealed carry in their pews, regardless of state law. "The whole idea of a gun-free zone is inherently dangerous," says one.
I can't help wondering if there's someone they could talk to about that. Someone who offers peace and protection to his followers? Just a thought.
