Fla. pastor returns to pulpit after being wounded

A Florida pastor has returned to the pulpit one week after he and another minister were critically wounded when a gunman burst into the church and began shooting.

Pastor William Boss was met with cheers Sunday when he took the microphone and told the congregation it was a "miracle" he was standing before them.

The Ledger of Lakeland ( http://bit.ly/odJCE7) reports that assistant pastor Carl Stewart remains in intensive care at a hospital. Polk County Sheriff's officials say 57-year-old Jeremiah Fogle is accused of killing his wife, Theresa Fogle, in their home on Sept. 18 before heading to the Greater Faith Christian Center Church and shooting Boss and Stewart.

Fogle is being held without bond on murder and attempted murder charges.
