J. Herbert Nelson: Gun Violence Prevention


After the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, people of faith yearned to respond. The horror highlighted that many children live with fear of guns every day. How can we understand the impact that gun violence has on our country? What can we do to change this culture of violence? What are the greater political and systemic issues that we ought to be aware of?

Derrick and Carol invited J. Herbert Nelson to discuss these issues. J. Herbert started the Liberation Community Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee. Now he serves as Director of the Office of Public Witness for the Presbyterian Church (USA). And while you’re listening, we invite you to check out this petition, sign it, and distribute it.

See this blog here? It's like we're having a party, and everyone wants to have a good time at a party, right? It's cool if you want to be critical, but if you're rude, well...then you won't get to party any more. And that would suck. So don't be rude.
