Houma church starts rebuilding after fire

From Louisiana-

During a Sunday worship service two years ago, pastor Craig Dalferes read a Bible verse to the congregation of St. Matthew’s Church.

“ ‘Do you see all these things?’ ” Jesus told his disciples as they looked at the magnificent temple in Jerusalem.

“ ‘Not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”

Dalferes said it was a difficult verse to preach about on a normal Sunday. But that was no ordinary Sunday — only a few days earlier, he had been standing in the ashes of the church’s landmark, century-old sanctuary in downtown Houma.

This Sunday, Dalferes stood in the grassy field where those ashes had been and read a different verse.
