The great haystack, common property of the church, set on fire. During the next few days dissension arose within the church between those who argued that the haystack was God's and He had allowed it to burn, and those who argued that if God couldn't protect his own haystack, what was the use of the members praying to Him for protection? As a consequence, some left the church.
