Fire and ice.
The First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain, just up the road from the Unitarian Universalist church I served as worship leader during its minister's sabbatical in 2001, was destroyed by fire Tuesday night. Today's Globe tells two stories about the small but growing urban congregation that occupied the grand old gothic building in the heart of the neighborhood: "Community Aids Church as Ice Saves Historic Book" (Ralph Rinalli, 1.20.05) and "Historic Organ Lost in Jamaica Plain Fire" (Michael Levenson, 1.20.05). Here's the first article about the fire, posted late Tuesday night: "Fire Engulfs Boston Church" (AP 1.18.05). What a nightmare.
