Turning It Up Against Gun Violence

At the United Methodist Women’s Assembly, “Make It Happen!” in Louisville, Kentucky in April of 2014, Hillary Clinton spoke; later that morning, Deaconesses and Home Missioners were consecrated. Fast forward to United Women in Faith’s “Turn It Up!” Assembly in Orlando, Florida, in May of 2022, and 26 Deaconesses and Home Missioners were consecrated – this time in a hybrid ceremony. Watching virtually, one felt as if there in person. Maybe virtually is the way to go until the gun violence in the United States is resolved……eradicated…..

This site archives the last 72 hours of gun violence. Reporting is voluntary, so the number of incidents is likely to be considerably higher. https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/last-72-hours

If you haven’t already, please contact your Representatives on The Hill (https://www.congress.gov/members). Tell them how you feel about gun violence and what you’d like them to do about it, and/or sign your name to this petition urging Congress to take action to end gun violence: http://txt.democrats.org/jy0

Thank you for wearing orange on Gun Violence Awareness Day!

Turn! It! Up!

As I reread an article in our North Country Breezes by Allie Lakey back in June 2014 I was reminded of the assemblies I attended in the past. At this year’s Assembly 2022 my experience was exhilarating to see the diversity and inclusion again gathered from those around the country. Singing along with the all women band was great knowing that it was their first time altogether in person.
