By Jim McCoy Wed 6th November Newsattempted bombingCoos Bay Prayer Chapel
A chapel designed as a public, nondenominational prayer space has reopened in Coos Bay, with damage from an attempted bombing repaired and new surveillance cameras in place. The World newspaper of Coos Bay (http://bit.ly/1b4WgRG ) reports about 30 people crowded into the Coos Bay Prayer Chapel for a rededication service Monday. A pastor and a local broadcaster spoke, stressing the value of forgiveness. The chapel opened a decade ago. In September, firefighters working on a small blaze found a bomb. In August, another bomb went off at a city park where a veterans memorial features a cross atop. A letter purporting to be from a veterans group opposed to religious memorials claimed responsibility for the attacks. The FBI has offered a reward for information leading to a conviction.
