NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (BP) -- Healing has just begun at First Baptist Church of New Braunfels, Texas, pastor Brad McLean told the congregation April 2 in the first Sunday worship service since the loss of 13 members in a bus accident days earlier.
"We gather as a church family who has suffered the loss of 13 of our family members, and so we gather with a heavy heart this morning," McLean said during the service, according to the church's April 3 press release. "It is important for us to recognize that our pain is real, our loss is real, our grief is real, and as a church family we will have to work through these losses together. It will not be done in one Sunday. It will not be done after one week of memorial services -- it will take time." Read More
