Students react to Texas church shooting

The Texas church shooting that killed 25 and an unborn child, a concert shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 dead and those killed on the NY bike trail all happened within a few weeks of one another - and all occurred in places or at events where people wouldn't necessarily think to be concerned for their safety.

The church has been turned into a memorial for the victims. Along with grief and concern over gun violence, the attack also resurfaced an idea: Should we increase security at - or even arm members of - our own churches? And in an interview with Fox News, Dallas evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress said his church members - of which he estimates "a quarter to a half...are concealed-carry" - would prevent a mass shooting from occurring in his church.

I recently appeared on Moody Radio's "Equipped with Chris Brooks" program to discuss how people can help in the wake of the Sutherland Springs church shooting. They're families that typically depend on the church's food pantry, which had to close for days after the shooting.

Multiple people are dead after gunfire erupted at the church, which is not far outside San Antonio, according to reports. "We want to talk with our citizens and church leaders about potential threats", said Chief Mark Weeks. Texas governor, Greg Abbott, called this the worst mass shooting in state history. "Combine that with fairly free access to guns and you end up with a deadly cocktail", said Nelson.

"One of the arguments coming out of this is politicians and media saying we need to stop saying thoughts and prayers, and for me, that's not something that needs to be said right now", Patnode said.

"I just want to make sure the public, this small community, was aware of some of those steps that you could take", Weeks said. Authorities put the official death toll at 26 because one of the 25 people killed was pregnant.

Members of the media asked Collins if the almost 100-year-old church building will stay.

The crowd stood, clapped and raised their hands to heaven.

The Serve the City plan was already in place, a partnership with Children's Hunger Fund to feed the community, but after last week's church shooting in Sutherland Springs, the event gained new meaning.
