An Illinois church where the senior pastor was gunned down mid-sermon a week ago has resumed services with advice from a Texas preacher whose church experienced something similar.
One week ago, Fred Winters was shot dead by a gunman whose knife later injured himself and two church members. That suspect's jailed on murder charges.
Meredith recounted how his own church in 1999 was the scene of a gunman's rampage that killed seven before the shooter killed himself.
Meredith said First Baptist may never get over what happened but should use the tragedy for spiritual outreach.
