26 Dead. 14 were children. A pregnant mother. All worshippers of our Lord, gunned down.
Sin is senseless. Evil is sin in overdrive. A parasite that feeds on the good, evil should be despised. This is part of lament:
“Let all their evildoing come before you,
and deal with them
as you have dealt with me
because of all my transgressions;
for my groans are many,
and my heart is faint.” – Lamentations 1:22
Lord, hear their cries. Comfort their hearts. Wipe our tears. Heal our wounds. When one member suffers, all members suffer.
Holy Comforter, comfort FBC Sutherland Springs and all affected. Bring justice, in your timing and in your way. Curb violence in our country. Bring shalom.
If you would like to help, alongside your lament and prayers, you may offer donations to help FBC Sutherland Springs families pay for funeral expenses. To contribute to the fund, you may mail or drop a check by to the Austin Baptist Association office.
