On Thursday, January 30, the NY State Council of Churches adopted a statement addressing gun violence (see below). On Monday, Febru-ary 4, I plan to call my members of Congress and ask them to support measures that will re-duce gun violence in our country. I hope you will consider not only joining me in this wide-spread inter-faith effort but promoting it with your friends and colleagues. Congress needs to hear from faith voices on this issue. To have an impact, our reach must be far.
Please help spread the word in your church community. Click here for sample pulpit, bulle-tin, website, and social media announcements.
To directly encourage friends to join in, ask them to sign up to receive a reminder email on February 4 or join the Facebook event.
The call-in number, which will be activated on February 4, is 1-877-897-0174. Check for additional resources at: http://faithscalling.org. Please contact Brooke at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
