A Pastor Comforts His Korean-American Congregation

Pastor Jim Shirlen of the Global Mission Church in Silver Spring, Md., knew it would be an emotional service. And while Shirlen isn't Korean, he believed that he had to try to communicate to his mostly Korean-American congregation that the church would help them deal with the tragedy that left 33 students and faculty dead last week at Virginia Tech.
