Lunch & Learn
Sunday, May 5 after worship
Guns by the Numbers – Lunch & Learn on May 5
The topic that received the most votes during a MSPC Social Justice
survey was “Gun Violence.” This is a topic that has been in the news
lot, gets a lot of public attention, and at times has been contentious.
As a starting place, the Social Justice Committee concluded that it
would be helpful to have information in the form of data on what is
happening now with guns in our society. A Lunch & Learn program is
scheduled for May 5 after worship with a presentation by Mark Bryant
from The Gun Violence Archive (GVA). Another way to get involved
is to learn about BUILD, the coalition of 27 churches in Lexington
that has started to address violence in our neighborhoods.
Your Social Justice committee urges our entire congregation to attend the
Nehemiah Action Assembly at Heritage Hall at 6:30pm on Tuesday,
May 7 to support this and the other issues the coalition is working on.
