Earlier this week, a sanctuary was wrecked by storm but the grand piano remains standing amid the wreckage. During the cleaning up of the disaster, pastor of Cornerstone Apostolic Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Raymond Sloan told WKRN-TV his members found a piano belonging to a previous pastor.
“The wall in the entry had fallen and it covered everything,” he explained to the local news outlet. “One of the men said, ‘We need to see what’s under this,’ and there stood this piano.”
“He sat down and started playing it and everybody in there started singing,” Sloan added. “No echo, because the roof’s gone, but the spirit of unity.”
Songs like “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” and “Still I Will Trust You,” the lyrics of which are:
Still I will trust You
Still I will follow
Still I will listen
To Your every calling
While the storm, rages on
And I can’t find my way
Still I will trust You Lord
The grand piano will be kept in the pastor’s dining room till the church find another place to hold service after pandemic ends.
A donation page has been setup for those that want to contribute to the rebuilding of the sanctuary lost to storm.
“Thank y’all for all your help today,” the pastor told volunteers who helped clean up the debris. “It’s gonna be alright. The Lord got us through one season to get us through the next season.”
