15ft Christ threatens wedding

No, nothing to do with a refusal to turn water into wine or anything like that!

Back in August 2007, a couple in Houghton-le-Spring in Tyne & Wear nearly had to postpone their wedding when a 15ft (4.6m) wooden statue of Jesus fell off the trolley being used to carry it to its final position in the church where they were getting married. The Sunderland Echo carried the story:

Sunderland Echo: 15ft Christ threatens wedding

They say faith can move mountains, but apparently for Jesus you need the fire brigade. Lends a whole new meaning to all that stuff in the Christian marriage ceremony about being gathered together in the presence of God, doesn’t it?
