Pastor Sonny Smith is calling it “a sign from God” after his church’s sanctuary burned to the ground with only one thing remaining upright: the cross.
“To me, that was a sign from God, saying, ‘Don’t worry, I’m still here and I’m going to lead you forward,’” the preacher told KDFW-TV, noting the congregation would meet outside, near the scene of the fire.

During an interview with CBS News, Smith called the cross’ survival “an absolute miracle.”
