Here's some irony for you...

One of our local churches in one of the attached but semi-independent bedroom communities of Joplin got hit by lightning early this morning, and was a near-total loss as a large percentage of it burned to the ground.

And this after having been eaten by a large tornado* in '03.

One begins to wonder if that particular church has done something specific to make God angry enough at them to withdraw his protection...

*That tornado was one of the biggest in area history before the one hit Joplin in May 2011.


  1. There's testing and then there is TESTING!!!

    1. That was my mother's thought. I tend to be much more pessimistic where church congregants are concerned.
