Preaching non-violence in violent times

At All Saints Church the senseless tragedy of the recent gun violence in Aurora, Colorado has called us to recommitment to being non-violent agents of change in our ongoing work of turning the human race into the human family.

On Sunday, July 29th we will be gifted with the presence of the Reverend Dr. James Lawson in the All Saints Church pulpit. Dr. Lawson is a true giant of justice – a hero of the Civil Rights movement, a powerful advocate and architect of the principles of non-violent direct social action and a dynamic and prophetic preacher.

In response to the Aurora tragedy the church will also be providing a tool-kit for non-violence to members at the Action table on the lawn. This toolkit will include information about online petitions to President Obama and Mitt Romney, plus resources for writing to Senate and House Leadership expressing support for several gun control measures.

Dr. Lawson will preach at both the 9:00 and 11:15am services.
