Lakeland, FL man opens fire in church
« on: September 19, 2011, 07:12:33 PM »
A church in Lakeland, Florida, was a scene of horror on Sunday, as a former member of the church walked into the building, took out a gun and opened fire. Jeremiah Fogel, the alleged shooter, was accosted by parishioners. Fogel's wife was shot and killed at home.

From the article:
Quote
"Pastor William Boss was shot once in the head," Judd said. "At that time everyone jumped up, and he went over to the left side of the church and shot the assistant minister Carl Stewart three times."

After Fogel opened fire, parishioners Derek Foster and Corey Reid grabbed the gun from him, hit him in the head with a nightstand and held him to the ground, according to Judd.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

"Lord have mercy."

Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
