2013 Children’s Sabbath Weekend

On the weekend of October 18-20, PHEWA’s Presbyterian Child Advocacy Network (PCAN) joins other faith communities in the 22nd annual National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths celebration by the Children’s Defense Fund.  The 2013 Children’s Sabbath, “Beating Swords into Plowshares:  Ending the Violence of Guns and Child Poverty,” will focus attention on the gun violence that takes the life of a child or teen every 3 hours and 15 minutes (and that wounds a child or teen every 34 minutes) as well as the violence of poverty suffered by more than 16 million children in our rich nation.
