Hundreds Gather In Sutherland Springs For First Service Since Shooting
Members of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas held their first Sunday service following last Sunday’s mass shooting there.
In an emotional sermon, Pastor Frank Pomeroy spoke of the 26 killed on Nov. 5., including his 14-year-old daughter, invoking a sense of both personal and communal loss.
“I know everyone who gave their life that day. Some of whom were my best friends and my daughter. I guarantee they are dancing with Jesus today,” said Pomeroy, according to the Associated Press.
Pomeroy also reflected on the gunman, Devin Patrick Kelly, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
“Rather than choose darkness as that young man did that day, we choose life,” Pomeroy said.
The service was attended by hundreds, both the Associated Press and San Antonio Express-News report. Accommodations had been made for some 500 attendees, but the AP adds, dozens more seats had to be added and the flaps of a tent were opened to allow even more people to view the service.
