Gun Violence, Gospel Values: Mobilizing in Response to God’s Call:
This report, approved by the 219th General Assembly (2010), challenges our society’s acceptance of the highest gun death rates in the world, and proposes a new “spiritual awakening” approach: a church-related, community-based strategy inspired by “Heeding God’s Call” in Philadelphia.
