Beating Guns: Hope for People Who are Weary of Violence
Gun violence is a public health crisis. It is also a spiritual and moral crisis. God changes hearts, but people change laws. The biblical prophets Micah and Isaiah imagine a world where God’s people beat their swords into plows and their spears into pruning hooks, building a world free of violence. Come hear Shane Claiborne speak about his community’s work transforming hearts, laws, and guns -turning tools of death into garden tools and other instruments of life!
The event begins with Shane’s presentation, followed by time for Q & A. Doors will open at 6:30 P.M. Light refreshments will be available before and after the presentation, with time to build relationships, network, and socialize. Offered both in-person and online.
