Join us, as the authors of the new book “Beating Guns: Hope for People Who are Weary of Violence” along with local faith community leaders and local families impacted by gun violence, share a message of hope and healing during this book tour event. Inspired by the Biblical prophets’ call to “beat swords into plowshares” authors Shane Claiborne and Mike Martin are taking this tour to 37 cities this spring with a forge and blacksmith tools. The forge will be operating during the event, turning a gun into a farm tool. The event will also feature music, art, and stories of people impacted by gun violence, including local voices. The tour experience culminates in an invitation for participants to take the hammer and help reshape the gun into an implement for growing food.
