US Church Destroyed by Fire, Sign of Hope Remains.

Historic US Church Destroyed by Fire, But a Sign of Hope Emerges

A 160-year-old church in Spencer, Massachusetts, was destroyed by fire on Friday. The steeple of First Congregational United Church collapsed into the flames, according to WHDH-TV.

After the flames had charred the wood black, one beam fell across a chimney that remained standing, forming a cross. “That gives me hope that we’ll be back,” one woman told WHDH as she looked upon the scene.

A Heartbreaking Loss for the Community

“For a lot of folks, it’s a death in the family. For folks who have gone through life milestones here from baptisms to weddings to funerals, it’s devastating,” Rev. Bruce MacLeod, the church’s pastor, said. “I’m just sad for the parishioners and the generations and generations of people who have put their heart and soul into this church,” Danielle Debo said.
