In 2005, there was a shooting at the Church of Living God in Brookfield, Wisconsin. My then-husband knew the shooter from work a few years prior. He hadn’t known the shooter well, but it was incredibly disturbing to know that someone he had worked with had killed 7 people and then himself at a church service.
As disturbing as it was to know a shooter, at least we are blessed that we weren’t in the church when it happened. Too many people have been injured or killed in their house of worship.
