March for Our Lives on March 24

Students seeking to force action on school shootings have organized a St. Louis "March for Our Lives" through downtown, set for March 24. An anti-gun march will traverse downtown from Union Station to the Arch.

We are taught as Christians human life is sacred. Over the past month, I have been deeply moved by the passion and energy of teens that have propelled this conversation to the forefront of our national consciousness.

The students are asking anyone who's interested in joining them to meet at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 24, at Union Station (Market Street). From there, they'll march to the Arch. 

We may not all agree about gun control laws/regulations and how to act on it as a country.  But if you agree something needs to be done and it is time for our representatives in Washington to do something, then come join me in the St Louis March for Our Lives on March 24th.  Those interested please contact me for further details. 

I personally said “Enough is Enough” after the young woman was killed in Charlottesville, Virginia during the Klan March.  

I wondered what God must be thinking. I heard the gospel being preached by Rev Diane around that time about “Whom shall I send?", which asked, as a disciple of Jesus Christ, What am I called to do? I just couldn’t do anything, so I started praying that God show me ways I can stand for justice. I just can’t let the gun shots that kill, the words of hate be the loudest or the last thing God hears from God's people. 

If you have your reason for wanting to march on this issue and you want to be a part of UUMC group call, text or email me.  Once I see how many that wants to participate I will plan accordingly and let you know. The March is approaching fast so please respond asap.

Whether you plan on marching or not, please pray for those of us who do. 

God’s Blessing to all,
