My Answer/Billy Graham

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My family came to the United States because our country persecuted Christians. We worked hard and became citizens, but my English is not good and people in the church we attend not very friendly, and it hurts me. Maybe you could say something so churches be friendlier. —H.Z.

  • He stopped a church shooting with his hymnal

    In 1988, Jerry Waddell stopped a church shooting by hurling a hymnal at the shooter who had already killed one and injured a number of others. Waddell chased down and body-slammed the shooter; others helped hold him down until police arrived. Today, he thinks churches need to take the possibility of violence seriously and is actively working to made his church more secure. (Video by Bo Rader / The Wichita Eagle) (November 27, 2017)
