Burning churches Joke?
I heard that the police in Alabama caught three college kids that burned down about a dozen churches. When asked why they did it the report said they burned down the first two churches as a joke and then burned down the rest to distract attention from the first two!!!! Maybe I am getting dense but I fail to see the joke here. As you know if you have read any of my previous blogs my own church was also burned down and we have spent the last 4 years attempting to rebuild it. During this time money and resources that could have helped over 500 families in need have been diverted to the rebuilding effort and this is from a church with less than two-dozen in regular attendance. Even when we finally manage to complete the rebuilding effort it will take another 3-5 years to get back to the level we were at prior to the fire. The total loss of almost 10 years in helping others in the name of Jesus doesn't seem to me to be a joke. What about it, can you show me anything like a resonable punch line to this behaviour?
