The husband of a victim of the Charleston church shootings is urging people to focus on God as the anniversary of the tragedy approaches.

About 150 people attended a Bible study at Emanuel AME Church Wednesday, gathering upstairs from the room where nine people were killed during a similar Bible study a year ago.

The Rev. Anthony Thompson taught from the book of Mark – the same verses his wife, Myra, was teaching from when the shootings occurred last June 17. He told the group to focus on God because he is the only one who is really in control.
