The Concert Across America 9.25.16

Places of worship across the country are encouraged to hold their own music event, be it humble or humongous, to raise the volume on the national effort to save lives from gun violence.

“We will no longer be silent while violence permeates our world, our society, our Church, our homes and ourselves. Our faith calls us to be ministers of reconciliation, to give voice to the voiceless and to strive for justice in the name of our Lord.”
