Church Says Door Bears Image Of Jesus

Members of a southern Indiana church say they believe a wooden door there bears the image of Jesus.

People from across Indiana have come to the Reigning Light of the Healing Chapel in North Vernon to see the door. Congregation members say they can see a likeness of Jesus in the wood's patterns.

Congregation members said the image is similar to that of the Shroud of Turin, a cloth that many throughout the world believe has a likeness of Jesus.

The church's pastor, Charlotte Pahls, said she sees the image as a sign.

"I asked, 'Why, Lord, a door?' And he said, 'I am the door. If anyone knock, I will come in and sup with them,' " Pahls told RTV6's Ben Morriston.

Associate Pastor Carroll Molenhour said she was skeptical at first.

But I believe I have seen it. Others have seen it. It's there," Molenhour said.

Pahls said some people have wondered whether she aimed to make money by talking about the image.

"I said, 'Well, if we wanted to do that, we would have gone to the National Enquirer,' Pahls said. "It had nothing to do with money. It was about showing what God has brought."

The church says it invites people to visit the church to see the door.
