Coalition Against Gun Violence & Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara HOST AN INTERFAITH VIGIL • WED., DEC. 4th • 6-7pm • Unitarian Society Sanctuary, 1535 Santa Barbara Street
Wednesday, December 4th at 6pm, in recognition of the 2019 Annual National Vigil for Victims of Gun Violence, Rev. Julia Hamilton, the Unitarian Society and the Coalition Against Gun Violence, are hosting an Interfaith Vigil including Santa Barbara faith leaders of multiple traditions in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Church to honor victims and families of gun violence. Clergy from diverse faiths will say prayers in their tradition. Photos and music will embellish the ceremony. A BELL will be tolled as every loss is remembered. The focus is a re-dedication and a renewed call to action to reduce violence in this season during which we often speak about peace. Together, each in our individual lives, we will dedicate ourselves to holding peace in our hearts, and extending outward our spirituality with thought and action. Both a Santa Barbara City Proclamation and a County Resolution will be presented and read at the Vigil. Write-In postcards – “#HonorWithAction” – will be available for attendees to urge Congress to support gun violence prevention legislation.
