Hymn: 335,609 (“I Cried to God”)

I cried to God, “Three hundred thirty thousand!”
Five thousand more, six hundred more, and nine!”
In just ten years, a truth we can’t imagine:
All died from guns, one loved one at a time!

A Terrible Test of Faith

A sermon preached by the Rev. Roger Scott Powers
at Light Street Presbyterian Church in Baltimore
on Sunday, June 29, 2014.
