Rev. William Boss was shot by a gunman during services Sept. 18.
The Rev. William Boss gripped a microphone Sunday and began to speak, his voice a gentle rasp.
“This, too, will pass,” he said.

“Ain’t no doubt heaven opened up,” he said. “It was some angels that were faster than a bullet.”
Just last Sunday, horrified members of Greater Faith Christian Center Church in Lakeland witnessed a gunman shoot Boss and another pastor, and they wondered whether Boss would live, much less be able to return so soon.
