On Saturday, March 24th, Redeemer gathered a group of nearly 50 congregants and community members of all ages who piled onto a bus and rode to the State Capitol to join nearly 18,000 Minnesotans and millions more across the nation in the March for Our Lives.
Despite the blistering cold, we were encouraged and inspired by the young speakers from the Twin Cities and from Parkland, FL, who shared their own harrowing stories of how gun violence has impacted their lives in myriad scenarios from street violence to school shootings.
As a church living out the mission of God in an urban area wracked with gun violence, Redeemer uniquely understands that the scourge of gun violence goes deeper and farther than mass shootings. It is the daily lived reality of so many of our neighbors and school children, a reality we are committed to changing. The March for Our Lives is one piece in a movement for whole, healthy, equitable living.
