CLEVELAND, TN: The Reverend Dr. Timothy M. Hill, General Overseer of the Church of God, issued the following statement concerning the recent mass shootings:
“My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those killed and injured in the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Literally dozens of families have been devastated by these horrific acts of violence across the heartland of our country.
I pray for comfort for those who have lost loved ones and for healing for those who were injured in these tragic incidents. In addition, I call upon our global church family to pray for healing in our lands. The Scriptures clearly tells us that if we will turn from our wicked ways and call upon God, He will bring a healing to our land.
With more than 20 mass shootings in the last seven months in this country, there is no doubt that a healing needs to occur in America. May we seek such a healing today.”
