We are excited to announce our upcoming Big Class, A Christian Response to Gun Violence with The Rt. Rev. Eugene Sutton, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and the The Rt. Rev. Ian Douglas, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut.
From Sept. 14-Sept. 28, anybody who wants to take this free online class can learn how to respond in productive ways to the problem of gun violence that continues to plague our nation. In a series of four short videos, Bishops Sutton and Douglas, co-founders of Bishops United Against Gun Violence, offer insight into how and why Christians need to become active in our opposition to gun violence. The class offers opportunities for Christians to contemplate the problem of gun violence with other Christians across the world and also with the bishops themselves, who will respond to questions and comments from participants over the course of the two-week period. It is free for everyone, takes less than an hour to complete, and requires no special software. For more information and to register, click here.
Anybody who has any interest in the problem of gun violence in the U.S. can profit from this course, which offers compassionate, practical ideas about combating gun violence. “This course is not about repealing the Second Amendment,” says Sutton. “It’s about examining the roots, causes, reality, and our response to our increasingly violent and tragic age, and offering ways for Christians to take action.”
