Disaster and Calamity: Vengeful

Some people, I suppose, still might consider the destruction of the Good Fellowship Church a disaster of some sort.

Personally, I don’t know why.

Cross has been the home to many churches over its existence. Few have survived intact for the duration. Many end up like the Good Fellowship Church, which is for the best. There is no dominant theology in Cross. Instead, there is a pantheon which ranges from negligent to horrific, with more in the latter than the former.

I don’t know what the congregation of the Good Fellowship did to annoy their particular God. I don’t know if it was the result of one parishioner’s actions, or anyone’s. What I do know is that on a bright and sunny morning in October, their God came calling.

There were reports of a little girl walking into the building after most of the congregation had gathered for their Sunday worship. A few minutes later, the building exploded from within. Within an hour, the entire structure was destroyed.

There were no survivors.

I was there when the dead were hauled out. What struck me as unusual was the fact that the tongue had been torn out of every person. I found them gathered in a pair of large chalices on the altar. Pristine and untouched by the flames.

I suppose the God had tired of listening to them talk.
