Refuge at the Communion Table

Here's a wonderfully symbolic account of how a man survived the tornado yesterday:

Amid the destruction, a stunning tale of survival arose. Dale Thrasher, a Yazoo City man, told WLBT-TV he was inside the Hillcrest Baptist when his wife called him around 11:30 a.m. to tell him that a tornado was approaching. Thrasher looked outside and saw the rain and the funnel cloud. The only place he had to go was back inside the church.

Thrasher ran into the sanctuary and dived underneath the communion table as the church came down around him. Thrasher was not hurt.

From here.
