SPEAKERS

Jan Arnow

The issue is not how to build consensus in a perfect world but in the one in which we are actively living and creating.  We cannot wait for governmental grants to appear, for everyone on our block to join up, or for our leaders to give us the go ahead.  Each of us needs to believe that we can make change happen, join our efforts with other like-minded individuals, and at the very least say “no” to anything we feel is going in the wrong direction. 

 

James Atwood

The book's purpose is to awaken a sleeping giant. The faith community in America. Nevertheless, people of faith are the best hope we have to unmask the idolatrous power of the Gun Empire which gains its nourishment from killing. To help us understand how over the years, our people have  been grievously deceived by the NRA and the Gun Industry and what concrete actions we can take to stop the madness of gun violence is the content of the book. 

 

Sharon Ely Pearson

Through deep conversation, prayer, and skill building, we can address gun violence and reclaim its role in society as workers for nonviolence and peace. Inspired by the prophetic words of many who have been involved in addressing the epidemic of violence in our nation, Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: Challenging the Epidemic of Gun Violence (Morehouse, 2015) offers the wider community resources to take action on the local level, while also hearing the voices of those who are calling us to action.

James Atwood contends that the thirty thousand gun deaths America suffers every year cannot be understood apart from our national myth that God has appointed America as "the trustee of the civilization of the world" and even "Christ's light to the nations." Because these purposes are noble, and we are supposedly a good and trustworthy people, violence is sometimes "required" and gives license to individuals to carry open or concealed weapons, which "save lives" and can even be "redemptive. "Having spent thirty-six years as a Presbyterian pastor fighting against the easy access to firearms, one of which took the life of a friend, he uses his unique experience and his biblical and theological understanding to graphically portray the impact guns have on our society.

Over 300 Episcopalians came together in Oklahoma City in April 2014 to renew their commitment to the Gospel call to make peace in a world of violence. Through deep conversation, prayer, and skill building the event empowered the Episcopal Church to address violence and reclaim its role in society as workers for nonviolence and peace.
