From Pastor Marietta:
On the day of the shooting at Uvalde Elementary School in Texas in May, we had to go into lockdown here at Spirit of Life and Little Doves Children's Learning Center due to police action in the area. As that day unfolded, I was met again and again by the reality that gun violence is something we are collectively experiencing and that we can collectively work to unpack. Thankfully, our denomination, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, has created a resources that will help us begin: The 60-Day Journey Toward Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence. These free materials can be downloaded at this site: elca.org/60days. I invite you to join in this study with me on Wednesday nights on Zoom. We will meet at 7 pm from September 21 to November 16. The Zoom link is provided in your weekly email, or by contacting me.
The study is an individual, daily reflection that lasts for 60 days. Over the course of the study we will be informed, inspired, and invited. We will gather once a week to share our thoughts, discuss what we are reading and to pray for an end to gun violence. I look forward to this time together. I have also invited our siblings in Christ at First Lutheran, Elim Lutheran and St. Bede's Episcopal to join us. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 876 5094.
