Featuring Shane Claiborne - founder of Red Letter Christians
Tuesday 26 October 19h30-21h via Zoom.
Parkland. Las Vegas. Dallas. Orlando. San Bernardino. Paris. Charleston. Sutherland Springs. Newtown. These cities are now known for the people who were shot and killed in them.
More Americans have died from guns in the US in the last fifty years than in all the wars in American history. With less than 5% of the world's population, the people of the US own nearly half the world's guns. America also has the most annual gun deaths--homicide, suicide, and accidental gun deaths--at 105 per day, or more than 38,000 per year.
Some people say it's a heart problem. Others say it's a gun problem. Shane Claiborne believes it's both!
Join us for a very special conversation with Shane as he examines one of most significant moral issues of our times...Violence. Come and discern what we can do as Christians to beat weapons of all varieties into gardening tools. Come and capture a vision of hope for a world that is weary of violence.
