The SoMA is seeking a writer to collaborate in developing a video educational series on gun violence prevention for the SoMA’s Theocademy program. This series will be a response to the action taken by the 221st General Assembly (2104) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) which said, in part:
"2. Encourage synods, presbyteries, and seminaries to develop educational programs that include
a. the theological and pastoral care issues raised by murder, suicide, domestic violence, and wounding by gun violence,
b. a means of public acknowledgement of grief and repentance in worship and in communal events, and
c. links between those who have suffered from gun violence and existing support, healing, and advocacy groups."
