York Minster fire, 1984

This was the scene of devastation in York, this day in 1984.  As you may remember, some people blamed the Bishop of Durham for the fire - or at least they blamed God for an act of retribution.  After all, the bishop had dared to say that it was not absolutely necessary to believe in the virgin birth in order to be a christian. 


God does indeed work in mysterious ways if he chooses to destroy the glorious York Minster for the actions of another bishop.  But of course we knew that already.
