In light of our responsibility to listen to those most affected by the Parkland shooting, how else should we respond to this type of injustice? It is necessary for us as Christians to allow the Holy Spirit to speak in the midst of these tragedies. Being proper vessels for the Spirit, however, depends on us understanding what exactly we are called to as bearers of the Spirit. Our vision for justice must be submitted to God’s vision if we are to demonstrate a proper Christian response.
It has been nearly a month since the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida. While some may not have heard of Parkland until this event took place, for others it hit very close to home. In seeking to find a proper Christian response to this tragedy, then, perhaps it is the voices of those most affected that we should look to for advice.
