Guns: The Real Story

Since the devastation in Newtown, Connecticut, almost ten years ago, the gun lobby has gone all out to convince us that the way to curtail gun violence is to have plenty of “good guys with guns.” Amy’s family knows from bitter experience that this is a myth. We owe it to the 1.4 million US Americans who have died by gunshot since 1968 to reject the myth and choose real solutions. Most of all, we owe it to those who will otherwise be next.

Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern

Special music: Ihang Lin, piano

We are on our summer schedule through July 31: one service at 10:30 am.

We gather in person in the Main Hall, in person on the main patio, and via In person, we are distanced 3′ and masked for safety; proof of vaccination and a mask are required to enter the Main Hall. Outdoors, masks are not required, but are recommended. While there is no Children’s Religious Education (summer Sunday school) today due to the holiday weekend, childcare is available during the service.
