What Can We Do?



We face growing violence in our land, unnecessary and fatal violence. What can we do?



  • Push for legislation
  • Protest
  • Not much

We discuss possible causes: breakdown of the family, violent video games, prejudice, poverty. Easy to talk about, hard to change. There’s not much we can do, right?


1 Timothy 2:1-3 (MSG)
The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation.Let us pray

  1. There’s another thing we can do, and that is to remember that the vast majority of people are just getting on with their lives. The violence is horrible, but it’s also ‘ratings’ for the media.

    There is a storm, but around it there is blue sky, miles and miles of mildness. Focus on that.

      Good point. I wake up to the songs of birds. God’s mercies are new and glorious every morning!
