Guns to Gardens/Guns to Grace allows faith communities to live out the words of the prophets – beating swords into plowshares, guns into garden tools and art. It brings new life to a community by reducing the risk of gun violence and gun crime related to unwanted, unsecured, unsafe firearms and turning instead to life-giving tools: growing food, greening neighborhoods, and feeding faith.
This workshop introduces resources to develop gun violence prevention ministries in the parish.
Benefits include community partnership, violence reduction and peace promotion, artistic expression, deep healing, and living into the Way of Love.
