    Faith-Based organizations given security briefing following the killings at Jewish community centers

    By Dan Wooding
    Founder of ASSIST Ministries

    PHOENIX, AZ (ANS) -- The U.S. DHS, FBI, Infrastructure Protection, Intelligence and Analysis, and FEMA provided national faith-based organizations a security briefing today related to the incident which fatally wounded three at Jewish community centers on Palm Sunday in Overland, Kansas.

    According to a story by Tony Rizzo in The Kansas City Star, Johnson County prosecutors on Tuesday filed two types of murder charges against a 73-year-old avowed racist and anti-Semite in the shooting deaths of three people outside Jewish facilities in Overland Park.

    Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., who is better known as F. Glenn Miller Jr., is charged with one count of capital murder in the killings of 69-year-old Overland Park doctor William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood.

    Miller is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Terri LaManno, 53, a Kansas City mother of three who was shot outside Village Shalom senior living facility. The assailant is alleged to have a long history of affiliations with KKK activities resulting in prison time.

    In a special ASSIST News Service interview, CEN Founder and President Mary Marr a member of the DHS Faith-based Advisory Committee summarized the key highlights of the briefing for the Christian community: “We stand with the Jewish community in their time of grief and ask God’s protection over all houses of worship as a cherished freedom. In addition to praying for the survivors of the KS attack and helping the Overland KS community to heal through acts of love, compassion and kindness this is another reminder that houses of worship are particularly vulnerable to lone wolf active shooter incidents and need to take personal responsibility to be ready spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically to stand should an incident like this happen in your community, church or home.

    “Please notify CEN as well as your local law enforcement with the contact information of your security liaison should it be needed; refresh your CEN emergency operations plans using practice drills; follow the guidelines for active shooter prevention and mitigation offered by DHS; and let CEN know you are willing to lead a citywide or church emergency/security group in your area. Sign up for CEN alerts, warnings and bulletins for up to the minute information and to strengthen your relationship with local and national law enforcement.”

    Bringing God’s Message Into The Wilderness

    The Lord spoke through Isaiah and said,

    “A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” A voice says, “Cry out.” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”

    You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!” See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” (Isaiah 40:3-11 NIV)

    Our witness helps make a path to the Lord. When John the Baptist preached, and told people to repent, few understood what he said. John was operating outside the Synagogues. Often, when the Word of God is spoken, we do not always see the results, the Lord does, and we may not understand the effects of our work this side of heaven. Wesley often preached outside the churches, he went to the people in need of the truth. Likewise, CEN brings the Gospel to those who are often outside the church by equipping churches and Christians to present the truth in difficult times.

    During a disaster, everything we have made, everything we think will change, as tings fals apart. We, and everything we make are truly grass that withers and dies. Only the word of God endures.
    Those who bring the good news are told, “lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”  

    The Lord promises to provide a reward to those who follow Him, He promises to gather up those who are lost.

    CEN application:

    1.     How do we become a voice calling out?

    2.     To whom do we target with the Gospel?

    3.     When do we minister?
