Have A Little Faith

November 28, 2011 by staff 

Have A Little Faith, Church stories are usually for Sunday mornings. But tonight — Sunday night — there will be a certain church story shown nationwide on ABC, and it’s pretty special because it started right here, in Detroit, with a drop of rain.

As the years passed, the rain began to rot the roof. The ceiling grew brown. The plaster peeled and fell.

One morning, the pastor of this church — a big, smiling, heavyset man named Henry Covington — noticed the rain had rotted a hole through the ceiling. It got bigger. And bigger. Soon the hole was nearly 20 feet long, and the water came pouring in, splashing on the pews as the congregants prayed.

In other churches, in other places, they start a drive to raise funds for repairs. But in this church, in this city, there was no such money. The congregants were poor. Some were homeless. And Pastor Henry was a once-wayward soul who, in giving his life to God, left the bad life behind and took nothing with him.

The hole grew and grew.

But the power of a place.

It can move mountains.
