A Possible Positive Coming Out of Sutherland Springs
In the midst of this horrific act, I do see a possible positive emerging. The media has been focusing on life in the congregation and giving an image which could break down stereotypes of how churches function.
Many Americans have no idea what happens in a church and in this Baptist Church, they are seeing people loving and caring for each other. Church life as a whole looks pretty good in the news reports.
With so many lonely people in America these days and churches trying to provide needed relationships, I would not be surprised to see an increase in worship visitors in coming weeks, once the fear subsides some.
