Worship Service Canceled Because of Threats

Three members of a church youth group called their pastor on a Saturday to tell him that a man who had previously damaged the church had a message for him: “If you enter the town tomorrow for Sunday worship services, you will be killed.” The next morning, church members called to warn the pastor that groups of people were gathering around town, planning to attack him when he arrived at the church. On the advice of the police, the pastor decided to cancel worship service that day. Pray for the pastor’s wisdom as he decides how to handle these threats.
