May 20—Gun Violence: A Respectful Approach to Prevention
Grace member Rev. Jodi Barry and Rev. Dr. Ron Letnes will lead this forum on how to approach the issue of preventing gun violence. Jodi and Ron are members of Engage, a Saint Paul Area Synod public witness committee, formed to provide opportunities for education and advocacy around the prevention of gun violence. Engage encourages a balanced approach to this issue, welcoming both gun owners and non-gun owners. As this issue is debated both locally and nationally, take advantage of this opportunity to talk about how to balance the rights of gun owners for hunting, sport and personal protection, with the recognition that gun violence threatens and destroys life.
