The linked article tells a story about a church that experienced another tragedy related to a fire. Friday night the church was set ablaze by a “drifter” or “passerby” as the article describes. The individual stole $250 worth of music equipment prior to setting the church on fire. He was not a member of the church, nor did he live in the town that the church was located. This individual was just passing by and saw the church as an easy target. Is your church viewed as an easy target?
