Crystal Cathedral Offering Falls Short — Really Short — of $50M Objective

Filed under: current events — Tags: , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 5:26 am

If you volunteered to help count the offering after the Crystal Cathedral’s launch of a $50 million (US) “miracle” offering, you wouldn’t have to worry about arriving home too late for lunch.  The initial response — the church believes it has until Thanksgiving — was $4,737, according to report filed with the bankruptcy court.  That court is under pressure from creditors to simply accept one of the two dominant offers to purchase the land and buildings; one from Chapman University and one from The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange County.

So let’s compare those two numbers:

  • $50,000,000.00
  • $00,004,737.00

So far, they have a long way to go.  Thanksgiving in the U.S. is held in November.  The creditors want the decision made by October 31st.

  1. When God shuts things down, He shuts them down. When He wants them to grow they will grow. I am reminded of the scripture that says one sows, one waters, but it is God that makes it grow. Looks like He has made a decision about this particular garden.
