"Prayers for Sisters and Brothers in Texas
We unite in prayer for those families and the communities affected by the senseless killing of children, women, and men in the First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, Texas. Their loss is heart-rending.
We join other faith organizations, including the National Council of Churches, and communities who grieve for those families who lost loved ones.
This tragedy reminds us of our call to “Become a people of the Temple—those who see violence but proclaim peace, who feel conflict yet extend the hand of reconciliation, who encounter broken spirits and find pathways for healing.” (Doctrine and Covenants 161:2a)
It also points us to World Conference Resolution 1270, on personal use and ownership of firearms. "
