Due to the fear of gun violence, some congregations lock their doors during worship. Some churches have armed guards. Others post signs stating guns are not allowed on the property. But for people of faith to prepare for possible incidents of gun violence in our houses of worship, we must first have the tools and the language to productively discuss it in our own congregations. This webinar in the “Standing Our Holy Ground” series discusses how we can talk about gun violence in our churches and explore various methods of church safety and preparedness for gun violence.
Featuring: Emily Brewer, guest facilitator & Executive Director, Presbyterian Peace Fellowship; Katie Day, Professor, United Lutheran Seminary; Virginia Classick, co-chair, Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles; Sarah Logemann, pastor and author of G-NS: A Resource for Generous Dialogue about Gun Violence.
