Gun Violence, Gospel Values: Mobilizing in Response to God’s Call

Gun Violence, Gospel Values: Mobilizing in Response to God’s Call

This report, approved by the 219th General Assembly (2010), challenges our society’s fatalism and numbness in accepting the highest gun death rates in the world, reviews past church positions and proposes a new “spiritual awakening” approach: a church-related, community-based strategy inspired by “Heeding God’s Call” in Philadelphia, with similar groups in Richmond, Virginia and central New Jersey. The report looks at our culture of violence-acceptance, with its undercurrents of fear and desperation.
