Sheriff: Pastor Dead, 2 Hurt in Shooting at Texas Church

A 21-year-old man who hid from police in an East Texas church was charged with first-degree murder and felony assault in a shooting that left the pastor dead and two other people injured Sunday, a local sheriff said.

Authorities had been using dogs and drones to search for the man late Saturday in woods near Winona following a car chase, and the pastor of the nearby Starrville Methodist Church discovered him hiding in a church bathroom Sunday morning, Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith said at a news conference.

Smith said police were initially pursuing the man because he was suspected of brandishing a shotgun through the sunroof of a Volkswagen Jetta he was driving Saturday. Authorities believe the suspect, identified as 21-year-old Mytrez Deunte Woolen of Marshall, Texas, broke into the church after police had left the area around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Pastor Kent Christmas Gives Powerful Prophetic Word for 2021

Pastor Kent Christmas of Regeneration Nashville in Nashville, Tennessee, took a New Year's Eve opportunity to release a powerful prophetic word regarding what the Lord has in store in the year ahead. His prophecy covered several topics, so the Charisma News staff encourages you to watch the video to gain the full depth of the message.

Christmas says he received this word in a time of prayer with the Lord, who gave him the bulk of the message in about an hour and a half of prayer time walking around the park.

"God has felt the pain that's in this nation and in the nations around the world. And the Lord is reaching down, and He's beginning to lift this pain of divine sickness that's come upon us, and He's loosing divine healing. We're getting ready to see great, great things in the Lord," Christmas said.

Michael Brown: Congress Has Officially Gone Gender Crazy

In case you haven't heard, House Democrats want to remove all gendered language from their legislation, while the prayer to open the 117th Congress ended with, "Amen and a-woman." I kid you not. Who would make up something so insane?

Let's start with the P.C. prayer, which has to be seen to be believed. It is offered in "the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma and 'god' known by many names by many different faiths." And it concludes with, "Amen and a-woman," as if the "men" of "amen" was somehow a gendered term.

How patriarchal and bigoted to use the "men" word in prayer.
