New Thoughts on Newtown

  • Trinity Presbyterian Church 3003 Howell Mill Road NW Atlanta, GA, 30327 United States (map)

In remembrance of the mass shooting five years ago in Newtown, Connecticut, Faith in Public Life and Outcry Georgia will hold a prayer vigil, followed by a call to action for people of faith in Georgia to create a state with safer gun laws.

Bishop Wright will speak at this interfaith event along the lines of his recent Prayer is A Prelude to Action and Let’s Not Pray messages on reactions to gun violence:  a very direct and passionate call to action arising out of our faith.

"Prayer with no corresponding action is a useless and vain exercise. Most importantly, prayer without action is not the faith Jesus practiced!" – Bishop Robert C. Wright
