The Akron Alliance Fellowship Church in Ohio recently installed a $3,500 air conditioning unit. Within a week of its installation, the unit was stolen from the church by some thieves. Pastor Gus Brown said the church hadn’t even made the first payment on it!
As a result, the church posted a funny message on its marquee sign: “Whoever stole our A/C unit: Keep it. It’s hot where you’re going.” While funny, Pastor Brown said the message wasn’t meant to be taken literally.
Brown said the church believes there is “room for reconciliation” it the thieves make amends for their theft. If so, Brown said that if the thieves did repent, they would even be welcome in their church one day! You are a good man, Pastor Brown!
