Interfaith Coalition Against Gun Violence

An interfaith clergy coalition, Outcry: Faith Voices Against Gun Violence, has come together to raise our voices as people of faith all across Georgia in hopes of preventing gun violence in our state. 

We believe that God calls us to value every human life and commands us to live in peace with one another. 

We believe that God also commands us to love our neighbor and therefore it is our responsibility to do all that we can to ensure the safety and security of all people.

We can no longer be silent about gun violence in our state.  We will oppose political decisions driven by fear that promote the notion that the answer to gun violence is more guns.  As citizens of Georgia and as leaders of faith communities we oppose House Bill 875 and any legislation that would allow more guns in more places in our state.

Through our faith, we have a vision for human community that is built on solidarity and trust, not fear and terror.  We hope and work for the day when neighborhoods and communities all across our state will be places where human life is valued and celebrated, not tragically ended by gun violence.  In this hope, we are encouraging all people of faith to become informed and active in preventing gun violence in Georgia.  We pray for moral clarity and courage as we seek to build peace and good will among the human family.  We commit ourselves to praying and working for public policies that promote the flourishing of our communities and our congregations in safety and peace.

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
