“Thought provoking. Good means to promote ecumenical dialogue on gun violence prevention and the theology of guns.” – Jeffrey, University Congregational UCC
“A very effective resource for generating group discussions both in terms of the theological and secular issues prevalent in the gun debate.” – Donald, Social Justice Chair, Church of the Servant
“This is beautiful. Profound. Important.” – Meghan, Gun Sense South Carolina
“It is so good and a great way to begin conversations and work on (the) prevention of gun violence.” – Rev. Michelle, Woodland United Methodist Church
Many in our movement believe that the only way to change the hearts and minds of those who oppose commonsense gun laws is to engage them in dialogue. This can be especially true for people of faith, where the discussion is not simply about the Second Amendment, but also about the spiritual implications of gun use.
The new film ‘Armor of Light’, which recently debuted in select cities across the country, does just that. The film follows the journey of an Evangelical minister trying to find the courage to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. From the films’s website:
Reverend Rob Schenck meets Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Florida and whose story has cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. McBath, also a Christian, decides to work with Schenck even though she is pro-choice. ARMOR follows these unlikely allies through their trials of conscience, heartbreak and rejection, as they bravely attempt to make others consider America’s gun culture through a moral lens.
Abigail Disney, the filmmaker, is providing special access to Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, but just for a limited time.
