Have we all heard the news about the minister of First Congregational Church, Ripon, California? The one who forged deeds and sold off the church building and parsonage?
I'd hate to have been the title insurer and a law-suit-fest seems to be in the cards.
Of course, my readers want to know which unhappy fellowship will meet run into First Congo, Ripon at vicinage meetings.
The United Church of Christ? No.
The National Association of Congregational Christian Churches? No.
The Conservative Congregational Christian Conference? Ding-ding-ding.
Not my favorite group. Would be interesting to know if the 4Cs will lift a finger on any side.
