Last month, Mississippi residents tapped their faith for motivation to rebuild after a devastating tornado. Now, Nashville residents are discussing The Covenant School massacre through the lens of their faith.
At the very same school, one Nashville pastor went viral Monday for his response to the shooting — and what he said went viral.

“We’re here to tell you today that God is in control, and that he’s sovereign. You know, this book, this story that we read, it’s got two different movements, almost. In verse 20, when the traveler asks them what they’re talking about, listen to the tone of their voice.”
The pastor then read Luke 24:20-34, a passage where some disciples discuss Jesus in front of a traveler.
“He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem,” the disciples told the traveler. “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.”
The pastor read that passage, and he said, “I don’t know about you, but I spent a lot of time this week in verse 20. The thing that helped me and helped us the most is just hearing the truth, just hearing the truth, having people speak the truth.”
“We had a gathering of people at St. Paul’s Wednesday night. It was supposed to be a prayer meeting. I was in charge, so it wasn’t organized,” the pastor said. “People just started reading Scripture and reading Scripture, and finally, we just stopped. It could have gone all night, and it was the most encouraging thing that could have happened, just to hear the truth spoken over you.”
This pastor went viral on a Twitter account for “Dope Preacher Clips.”
