Shootings in the Church


Jared Belcher, Ben Shoun, & Brett Moore

On November 5, one of the most deadly mass shootings in US history occurred at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas. At the time of this recording, 26 people had been killed, including children and elderly. As we process such a horrific event and pray for the families, a few questions come to mind. How concerned should we be about the frequency of shootings in public places? Is this a sign that churches in America are being targeting by acts of violence? How can churches put measures in place to protect against a shooting? In this episode, we address some fears that we have heard expressed as we pray for those affected on November 5.
