Just days after a deadly racist hate massacre at the A.M.E. Emanuel Church in Charleston, NC, the congregation reopened its doors for Sunday Service. Members of a historically black church worshipped Sunday back at the scene of the attach for the first time since it took place, during a Bible study session.
Uniformed police officers stood among the congregation to provide an extra sense of security as the service began with a message of love, recovery and healing.
“We still believe that prayer changes things. Can I get a witness?” Rev. Norvel Goff said. “But prayer not only changes things, it changes us.”
