RAW TOOLS - Guns to Garden Tools
June 22nd, 6:30 PM - Cathedral of the Rockies (corner of Hays & 11th)

Some Mennonite Blacksmiths from Colorado will be coming here who turn guns into garden tools as a creative act of peacemaking. They are called RAW TOOLS. There will be a service outdoors on Friday, June 22 at the Cathedral of the Rockies in Boise (11th and Hays). The Blacksmithing will begin at 6:30 pm and the service at 7 pm.  The service will include singing, art, prayer, hearing from two women who have been victims of gun violence, and turning the gun into a garden tool.
 
If anyone has a gun that they would like transformed, they can bring that as well – and the blacksmiths will transform it and return the tool to them.

-Marc, Pastor, Hyde Park Mennonite Fellowship
