A boulder narrowly misses a Massachusetts church

Missed it by that much.

A construction crew was blasting near the Grace Ministries Church in Saugus, Massachusetts, when the crew's blast inadvertently sent an enormous boulder hurtling toward the church.

But after the crew rushed toward the building to survey what they expected would be considerable damage, they made a startling discovery: The boulder had come to rest a few inches from the church's rear wall.

Uploaded by David Leclair, the video, predictably, has the comments section of YouTube a-chattering. Whether it's divine intervention or just the fortuitous location of the church's wall, there's one thing we can all agree on: The church can continue its work – which includes feeding the hungry – and that's a good thing.
