Presbyterian Peace Fellowship reported that in 2018 we saw gun deaths rise to 40,000 in America, with overwhelming mass shootings, along with murders, suicides, family violence and accidents. Watch for HR 8, a bill to require Universal Background Checks on all guns sold. If you feel led to respond to policymaking efforts, we encourage you to call Representative Walden 202-225-6730.
We are also being asked to pray on Feb. 17th, the Universal Day of Prayer for and by Students: “Gracious God,….. You encourage us to be our best…We confess that we have not done our best in protecting our children…Grant us a good and fresh start.” Joshua, Lionel, Marina and Tiffany, Grades 6-11.
