On March 8, 2009, a gunman walked into the First Baptist Church of Maryville, IL (in the St. Louis, MO area) and shot and killed Pastor Fred Winters as he was concluding his late Sunday morning sermon. The tragedy became a national and international story. When the shocked and grieving congregation looked for someone to preach the following Sunday, they secured Dr. Al Meredith, pastor of Wedgwood Baptist Church (www.wedgwoodbc.org) in Ft. Worth, TX. In 1999 a crazed gunman walked into Wedgwood Church and randomly shot and killed seven people. (Don Browning, the father of one of those victims, shares his unforgettable story regarding Sydney Browning in another on demand interview on www.haroldhendrick.com.) In this interview Pastor Meredith tells of the journey of his Wedgwood Church and offers comfort, guidance, and even warnings for the Maryville Congregation. He received much favorable press in St. Louis and around the country for his sensitive and wise counsel at Maryville. With his frequently being asked to make appearances in both local and national media, it is further interesting to hear of his ministry with the media. (We both observed how fair and sensitive the press had handled the Maryville tragedy.) Media people frequently ask him, “What can we do for you?” Pastor Al responds by saying, “You can let me pray for you!” And he does. Hear the very insightful, helpful and interesting comments Pastor Al Meredith offers to the Maryville Church for, not just surviving but, for overcoming. *** See Pastor Fred Winters quiet but powerful 5-minute video Why do we Exist presenting God’s Biblical plan of salvation at www.fbmaryvlle.org.
