    Oh no! When my sister lived in Robinson that was her Church. Back then her minister was named Jud, if I remember correctly. because that was many years ago. I attended there with her when I was a kid. Prayers for all involved.

    My parents and older sister retell over and over about the year they drove home from Decatur on Christmas Eve and a small country church was on fire. Heartbreaking- many prayers to the Robinson congregation.

    • Yikes, Libby! Imagine those flames against the sky…wild sight for sure.

      Know that Robinson’s current pastor, Rev. Tiffany Black, is great. Nonetheless, cannot imagine what this must be like for all involved.
