Vicar catches fire during online sermon

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Holy smoke! A Plymouth vicar whose niece is a 'mermaid' in Cornwall got a bit hot under the (dog) collar - when he accidentally set fire to himself during an online sermon.

"Reverend Stephen Beach, of St Budeaux Parish Church, was preparing the church's online Sunday Service, which featured five candles lit on a Christian Cross in the background. After leaning in a bit too close one of the candles caught his jumper which then caught on fire."

Full report with video at Plymouth Live: Link

I love that, the most understated reaction to catching fire ever. :lol:

Fortunately he put it out quickly - just as well he noticed it.

This was definitely an ALTAR-cation as a result of a fiery sermon!

He's most likely a friar.

He got burnt because he momentarily reverted to his true form.

I feel for you, I really do. When we got married back in '99, my wife accidentally leaned into a candle with her veil. It didn't do anything more than melt a hole in it, but for a few seconds it was one of those cringe worthy moments for Funniest Home Videos. It happens. At the very least, there will be a funny story to tell for awhile in the midst of these crazy times. :D
