Jesus struck by lightning!

Back in September 2007 I posted on this amazing statue of Jesus (above) rising out of the waters at Solid Rock Church in Monroe, Ohio. (That's the way the statue was posed: it's not the result of the lightning strike!)

Last night that statue was hit by lightning and destroyed. Read the story, with video here and here.

  1. Article mentioned that they would like to rebuild this statue. I would be surprised if their insurance company would go along with that idea.

    All the fish in the "baptismal" pool were killed as a result of the fire.

    Please keep us posted as this story develops!


  2. Sorry, you're on your own! I only post on this church and its statuary about once every two years.

  3. I am not sure if I should be honored or not for the H/T! And I post about this about every two years as well... and this time it did not get beyond FB!

  4. I saw a story about this on TV that said the statue was 6 stories high!
