The Right Place at the Wrong Time?

What: The bloggers at describe their visit to a Mormon church in Boston (part of a series of church visits and blogs about various denominations). They happened to attend at the historic buidling on the very day that it burned down, and wrote a surreal account of the entire experience.

Quote: "Watching other people watching their church burn to the ground makes you realize the power of a building to hold the collective memories of a society."
Reaction: This was published several weeks ago, but I was so startled by this post that I had to mention it. One commenter calls the post "epic," and that's exactly how this account feels.

  1. We saw the broadcast being discussed in that blog post from New York--I had no idea this happened until just now.
