Gun violence is an incident of human caused disaster. Recovering from such trauma requires time, energy, and a supportive community. As people of faith, we are called to walk alongside those that are hurting in their times of need. But what does that accompaniment actually look like? This episode of “Standing Our Holy Ground” features a panel of trauma experts and explore the various stages of healing from the trauma of gun violence and the Church’s role in accompanying people in their healing process.
Featuring: Kathy Riley, Associate for Emotional and Spiritual Care, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance; Jim Kirk, Associate for Disaster Response (U.S.), Presbyterian Disaster Assistance; Cece Armstrong, Pastor, Charleston, South Carolina; Bruce Wismer, Pastor, Sarasota, FL.
