Suicide Prevention, Mental Health, and Nonviolence

I'm back from a week away visiting family. What a refreshing time. I have three church blog posts I want to pass along for your consideration. They deal with suicide prevention in the wake of Robin Williams's tragic death, mental health issues and how we can help, and our responsibility in growing a more nonviolent culture following the ongoing, unfolding horror that is Ferguson, Missiouri. It is a tall order, but it is what we are all called to do to live in a civil society.

Suicide prevention: http://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2014/08/suicide-prevention.html
Mental health: http://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2014/08/stance-on-mental-health.html
Nonviolence: http://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2014/08/actively-working-to-end-violence.html

All three posts and their own links are well worth your time and consideration. Given the events in the world today, they also call for our immediate and positive action.
