Sunday morning service at Augusta’s Bethel AME church was somewhat special as the former reverend who led the Emanuel AME church following June 2015’s deadly mass shooting delivered a discourse to the congregation.

While the sorrow created by deadly mass shooting still has not ended nearly ten months later, yesterday’s message was clearly about forgiveness as well as how much work left the AME churches to do.

Rev. Dr. Goff said they should welcome everybody, and noted that they have witnessed a positive movement in terms of changes as well as relationships.
