A pastor in Lakeland, Florida is applying God's message of forgiveness after surviving a gunshot wound to the head. Reverend William Boss was shot while praying in his place of worship. The bullet pierced his skin, but miraculously flattened when it hit his skull. He says he survived because god was watching over him. Investigators say Jeremiah Fogle shot and killed his wife on September 18th - then walked over to the church and shot Pastor Boss and Associate Pastor Carl Stewart. Boss says he looked up from praying to see Fogle standing over him right before he was shot. Fogle used to be a member of the church but Boss says he still doesn't know why fogle would want to hurt him, but says he has forgiven him for his tresspass...just as god has forgiven us.
