Cross Left Standing After Church Fire in Texas
Even in times of great loss and sadness, the Lord is still with us. We should remember that truth that this church learned.
From Breitbart. A fire devastated a church in Texas on Friday, but there was one thing the blaze failed to destroy.
The fire at Balsora Baptist Church in Bridgeport consumed the building, according to the Wise County Emergency Services Department No. 2, and when the flames died down, one symbol was left standing tall, Fox News reported Monday.
The department said, “The fire took the structure, but not the cross. A symbol that the building was just that, a building. The Church is the congregation, and where 2 or more gather, there He shall be also….”
Video footage showed the flames crawling over the church’s roof as firefighters stood at a safe distance, watching the scene unfold:
