Nashville religious leader dedicates anniversary celebration to victims of Kroger shooting
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WKRN) – Longtime community activist and religious leader Reverend Enoch Fuzz dedicated his birthday to the victims of the Collierville Kroger shooting on Saturday.
Reverend Fuzz began his 66th birthday celebration with a prayer for Collierville, remarks from Mayor John Cooper and a minute of silence.
âWe all dream of an America that goes beyond this kind of violence and we pray that it will happen,â Cooper said.
The Collierville has a special meaning for the Reverend. Down the rue du Kroger is the church where he preached at the start of his ministry and even led the revival efforts at the grocery store. Plus, the house he grew up in and his elementary school were all within a mile of the Kroger.
âIt’s very close to where we live and I said we were going to pray for them because that’s what they asked us to do,â said Reverend Fuzz, pastor at the Baptist Missionary Church of Corinth. âThere are a lot of injured people, so the right people have to step in and help the injured people. ”
The celebration took place at the Elliston Place Soda Shop on Church Street.
