Thank you for the words of wisdom by Board Member Toi Clawson, The Church of Jesus Christ, Latter-day Saints, Opinion piece from the Democrat and Chronicle, titled:
Acting out of the core values
of our Christian faith,
the (GRCC) Faith In Action Network
of Rochester gathers congregations
and people from diverse communities
to build relationships and support initiatives based on spiritual and community values that advocate, model, and celebrate basic human rights.
We work toward the day when
every child, youth and adult feels safe, experiences support and care, and can discover ways to use their gifts for the good of the beloved community.
GUN VIOLENCE & GOSPEL VALUES:
This report, approved by the 219th General Assembly (2010), challenges our society's fatalism and numbness in accepting the highest gun death rates in the world, reviews past church positions and proposes a new "spiritual awakening" approach: a church-related, community-based strategy inspired by "Heeding God's Call". The report looks at our culture of violence-acceptance, with its undercurrents of fear and desperation.
