THE SCENE: A gunman entered First Baptist Church in Maryville, Ill., on March 8 and killed pastor Fred Winters. The attacker then used a knife to wound himself and two congregation members who subdued him.

THE VISITOR: The Rev. Al Meredith of Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, will be the guest pastor at the Maryville church Sunday when it resumes services for the first time since the shooting.

THE LESSONS: Meredith says he will tell Maryville congregants how his church rebounded from a gunman’s 1999 attack that killed seven people and wounded seven others. That assailant killed himself.
