Churches stand against South Carolina attack

Prayers for 9 victims of a shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, filled sanctuaries in Illinois where pastors spoke of love triumphing over hate.

In the southwestern Illinois city of O’Fallon, the congregation of New Life in Christ Church joined hands to sing “We Shall Overcome.” The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the church’s Bishop Geoffrey Dudley said: “No matter who’s doing the hating, God’s doing the loving.”
