Sutherland Springs: Worship resumes with call to overcome

Sutherland Springs: Worship resumes with call to overcome

That same day, the church building was opened as a memorial to the slain.

Many church leaders are also said to be reviewing their security practices, some reportedly considering permitting members with concealed carry gun licenses to bring their weapons to worship.

Nine Days after the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, a viewer sent an email to our Verify Team regarding gun possession by convicted felons in the state of Texas. "We were having vacation Bible school and. all they wanted to do was hug on me".

Multiple people are dead after gunfire erupted at the church, which is not far outside San Antonio, according to reports.

The third, defend. "We want to make sure that you defend yourself, that you don't just sit there and let whatever happens, happen", LaPorte said.

Aidan Miano, a freshman in the College of Business Administration and a Dallas native, said he had been through Sutherland Springs, where the shooting happened, and New Braunfels, the hometown of shooter Devin Kelley.

Considering the amount of mass shootings, homicides or involuntary deaths linked to gun use, it is time the citizens of America accept that massive gun armaments are a problem which should be dealt with once and for all.

Officials said if someone takes charge and has a plan, most people will listen and could save many lives.

So many people turned up to hear the sermon that the tent's side flaps had to be opened to allow people to see and hear the service. He said this as he fought back tears.

Frank Pomeroy spoke during the congregation's first Sunday service since last weekend's shooting that killed more than two-dozen people at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs.

The pastor of a small Texas church says evil was responsible for the worst mass shooting in the state's history. "This is a chance for us to say no, we love, we want to serve, and we want to sacrifice". "And I guarantee without any shadow of a doubt they are dancing with Jesus today".

Hundreds of worshipers gathered at a basketball field in Texas amid spitting rain and heavy clouds to worship with the First Baptist Church survivors on Sunday. And even well-intended calls for more robust mental-health services fall short, as these would likely fail to reach people who did not identify or had not been identified with mental-health needs.

Republican Sen. John Cornyn spoke at the service, saying lives were stolen as darkness overtook one man's heart.

It's been a hard week for the community of few that is located southeast of San Antonio.
