Prevent Gun Violence

A note from Disciples Peace Fellowship Co-moderator, the Rev. Bruce Ervin:
Dear Peace Seekers:
I hope that you’ve read the letter from Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence. It lifts up concerns that are dear to the heart of DPF. Among the signatories is the Rev. Ronald J. Degges, President of Disciples Home Missions and a strong supporter of DPF.

As you know, President Obama has asked Congress to pass legislation which would include a ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips, and require a background check on all prospective gun purchasers. Now is the time to contact your Senator and Representative and urge them to support this important legislation. All you have to do is send a quick email, making it clear that you support the gun control legislation which the President has proposed.

Blessings upon you as you continue to follow Jesus, the Prince of Peace!

    Quality articles is the main to attract the visitors to go
    to see the web page, that’s what this web site is providing.

    While I appreciate this call to action, I am disappointed at the apparent lack of resources available through the DPF web-site. I was intensely moved by the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, and have spent hours since them researching guns and gun violence. The peace fellowship branches of several of our sister denominations have easily accessed “tool kits” and other resources available to foster discussion of this topic. Did I just miss ours, or can we start to provide resources on this topic?

    Hey Don,

    I appreciate your input. As a volunteer organization, DPF is bound by limited resources, and is continually trying to expand the resources on this site. Sometimes it’s inadequate, but hopefully it is improving. We will work on getting more resources related to gun violence on the site in the future.

    Again, your input is very appreciated.
