A pastor was speaking to his church family this past Sunday morning (in my home state btw) and was shot dead. I was chilled when I read this this story. It just reminds me that one CAN be martyred here in the USA for speaking for and about God. See video here. I'm praying for these mourners (pictured here outside their church building) and especially the family of the pastor.
Marc Driscoll asks some good questions as a result of this on his blog.
