Christians in Oak Creek, Wis., are extending a hand to their Sikh neighbors following Sunday's massacre at their temple, CBN News reports. Rev. Jim Jodrey, an associate pastor of Harvest Community Church, which is just a mile from the temple, said his congregation knew very little about the Sikhs or their religion but that members were meeting their neighbors to offer material assistance and prayer. The weekend shootings claimed the lives of six worshippers and the alleged gunman, 40-year-old Wade Michael Page. Police shot and killed Page, who had described himself as a member of a skinhead group based in Texas.
