Suicide is the act or process of killing ones self. It is reported by the World Health Organization as the thirteenth leading cause of death world-wide. More males than females commit suicide. Suicide is generally considered an offense towards God by most religious circles, as it is a violation of the sanctity of life. This particular scenario you are describing seems to have what would be considered a higher than normal incidence of suicide. The fact that it is occuring after a new pastor took office may or may not be a deciding factor. An investigation probably would be the best thing to do, to determine what underlying motivators exist. The motivation to take ones life has always been a source of interest to science, both for humans and the animal world at-large, to help scientists become better equipped in dealing with the phenomenon.
