Intercession

A priest and I spoke about a possible parish ministry that might address gun violence. I mentioned reading an article in the New Yorker about people in the city who intervene when gun violence might erupt. She replied, “Our congregation? In the streets? With armed, angry people all around? That’s not where I would send the people of this church!” I had misspoken. I took another tack, that there’s no harm in asking these brave men and women who intercede in the streets, “What can we do for you? What do we have that might help and support you?”
