God is Speaking - What's Our Response?




The public conversation about the shooting at Shady Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut is not only healthy, it's vital. The day before the shooting, the school where my wife works and my granddaughter is a student was on lock down because of a report of a gun on campus. Our oldest son was killed by gun violence five years ago.

The shopping mall in Oregon.

The mass shooting at the mosque in Wisconsin.

The Arizona shooting in which Representative Gabby Giffords was shot.

The shooting in the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.

Columbine.

Virginia Tech.

Anyone waiting for God to speak, it's important to know that He has already spoken. He's waiting for us to take action. The question is what will we do?

If anyone doesn't think we need to do something different, here is a grievously eloquent message that we need to reconsider our ways...
