On June 17th, 2015, nine African Americans were gunned down during a bible study the shooter had been welcomed into with open arms. One of the victims, Myra Thompson, was the wife of today's guest, Reverend Anthony Thompson.
Through the telling of his story of those dreadful days, more clarity is given on how that tragedy unfolded behind closed doors and why. We also believe listeners will hear a story of miraculous forgiveness in a man’s heart. This miracle potentially was the catalyst of sparing Charleston SC from similar rioting that recently occurred in other parts of the country for other racially charged injustices.
We believe in this time of great polarization, the message of forgiveness is an important one. Along with his miraculous story of forgiving the man who murdered his wife, Rev Anthony is also helping to spearhead “events for unity” like "One New Humanity Charleston," on November 20.
