Join us on Thursday, December 15, 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT, for a presentation by Debbie Weatherspoon.
Ten years ago, on December 14, 2012, there was a mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. This year, it was Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. As informed people of faith, we are aware of increasing gun violence in our society. What is ours to do? Explore ways to engage our faith in the public square as we learn about the excellent work that has come out of heartbreaking tragedies.
