The horrific shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh followed a week of other hate-motivated violence across the country. A politically worked up van-dweller in Florida was arrested in connection with pipe bombs that were sent to political leaders and public figures. A man in Kentucky who attempted to shoot worshippers in a predominantly African American church turned his gun on two black people in a supermarket after seeing the church door was locked. This week on State of Belief host Rev. Welton Gaddy will speak with the Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, senior minister at Middle Collegiate Church in New York City, about what is happening to us, what we are becoming, and what religious leaders can do in this current moment in history in addition to reminding congregants that election day is Tuesday.
