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
