We pray and lament the horrific violence

Our prayers are with the families of the victims of the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. We stand together as sisters and brothers in the global family. We reject all forms of violence and we commit ourselves to continue collaborating in building gospel nonviolence so that peace prevails.

We refuse to diminish the humanity of others with racist words or hate speech and invite all to do this.

We pray that sensible policies are developed in regard to both small and large weapons in the world. We commit ourselves to the analysis of the systems building and trading in weapons that further death rather than life in the world.
