Kentucky church finds miracle sorting through rubble

Over the weekend, tornadoes passed through many states and caused significant damage. One of the hardest-hit states was Kentucky, where tornadoes devastated countless homes and structures Friday night.

The First Christian Church in Mayfield, Kentucky, experienced the disaster first-hand. Senior Minister, Dr Milton West told Today On Monday, following the tornado, the structural integrity of the building had been so impaired that employees feared the entire building would soon collapse.

But amid the ruins, a unique artifact remained undamaged: an altar carved with Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting, The Last Supper.

According to Today, the event Church use the beautiful altar for their communion.

“God’s table is intact,” First Christian Church wrote in a Facebook post.

West said the table and the cross on it have special meaning to every member of the church.

“It is at the heart of our worship experience,” he said.

Since West didn’t know how long the building would last, he said saving altar will be the top priority.

“Our goal for the day is that we hope to get it out of the building and preserve it along with some other artifacts,” he said.

“Our building is rapidly losing the little structural integrity it has left, so we’re going to try to get rid of that at least today before we do anything else.” .

At least 64 people have died from tornado nationwide as of Monday, Today reported. The four families who attended the Kentucky church had their homes completely destroyed.

“We grieve, we cried and we hugged and we pulled ourselves together and went to the next step of trying to recover and rethink where we wanted to be as a church, but Our people have stayed strong during this time,” West said.

He added that when a natural disaster strikes, many people are tempted to think that God is punishing them in some way. West wanted to strangle that lie at once.

“There are a lot of people out there who would say this is a sign from God that something is wrong,” he said. “We do not accept that view at all. Our faith is positive, and God is never the author of bad things in people’s lives.”

The event was just as devastating, West said as a positive community can gather around each other.

“I think this creates an opportunity for people to come together for the common good,” he said. “Those differences don’t matter when you’re trying to rebuild your life. I think we’ll see [fractured relationships due to political and cultural differences] descending here in Mayfield for quite some time. ”

As the congregation and the rest of the Mayfield community faced this tragedy, God provided them with a beautiful reminder of His providence in all things.
