What is God and Guns?

 

The issue of guns and violence can be tricky for a lot of faith communities. Even mentioning a mass shooting in worship can be controversial for some congregations. Others might be frustrated that their religious community isn’t more involved in organizing against gun violence.

God and Guns will provide resources to address the uniquely compelling moral vision and leadership available to faith communities while also providing an array of practical workshops to meet a wide range of needs, including:

  • How to preach about gun violence

  • The basics of community organizing

  • Social media practices that amplify your voice

  • How to talk to kids and teenagers about guns

  • Facilitating tough but constructive conversations around guns

  • Low-commitment partnerships to help your congregation test out involvement
