Few church failures are more harmful and painful than a church split. When good Christians become so upset with each other that they forsake the basic rule of love and unity and opt insted for schisms and separation. The history of the church is littered with such sad tales, but our future does not need to be.
Today’s post is about a different kind of church split. A split not precipitated by pride or dissension but by location. The Tonsupa church was built on a fault line.
Here are some pictures of the split right after the recent earthquake. (Thanks to our friend Katia Salgado for the following photos)
The church building reborn.
Our hearts are joined with our brothers and sisters in Ecuador! We can’t wait to worship with the Tonsupa church in their post-split building.
