Conversation Church/Common Ground Event 7/25 at 10:30 am

Join us 7/25 for a community conversation designed to build community and strengthen bonds between neighbors. Set within a time for prayer and reflection, this gathering seeks to grow curiosity, courage, and connection. Participants will respond to simple conversation starters, share their stories and perspectives, and discover common ground as well as diverse outlooks. Using materials from A Sanctified Art, we explore questions such as “Where Are You From?” and “Where Do We Go from Here?” Let’s come together, share stories, and grow common ground. This event will be hybrid (both in person and online.) If you’d like to join us via Zoom, let us know and we can send you the link. Pre-registration is necessary – sign up here: https://www.commongroundcle.org/events/2021/07/25/ive-been-meaning-to-aska-conversation-to-build-community

Wear Orange June 6

The first weekend in June is Wear Orange weekend, a remembrance observed by anti-gun violence movements around the country.  

Wear Orange began in memory of Hadiyah Pendleton, a 15 year old who was killed in a spray of gunfire in a park in Chicago.  God Before Guns invites everyone to Wear Orange on Sunday, June 6 in solidarity with all who believe in the sanctity of life and want to help build a nation that elevates that life above the fears that lead us to being a society armed against itself.  

God Before Guns will observe Wear Orange this year in a video interview with John Woodrow Cox, Washington Post journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist, who has authored the book, Children Under Fire: An American Crisis.   A link to the interview will be forthcoming.

Moral Monday online

Join the Poor People’s Campaign for a Moral Monday on Immigration on April 26th at 3pm ET/ 12pm PT to demand respect, dignity, and human rights for all immigrants!

We’ll be joined by immigrant leaders on the frontlines of movements for social change, demanding that we transform our broken immigration system with comprehensive and just immigration reform. From de-militarizing the border to the repeal of mandatory detention, deportation, child detention and family separation, to ensuring full access to public welfare and social programs and permanent protection for ALL 11 million undocumented immigrants, we are coming together to say that EVERYBODY has the right to live and thrive in this country.
