$150 Million Gift to PCUSA Questioned

The opening of the PCUSA General Assembly in Birmingham was electrified by the news that a man from Denver was giving $150 million to the church for new church development. Today the Denver Post reported that Stanley Anderson is in serious financial trouble--he owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to creditors and his assets have been frozen by legal judgments.

Guess we'd better not start planning to spend that money. Good grief.

John Dettrick started the plenary session yesterday by talking about his conversations with Anderson, and his reassurances that when the deadline aproaches, the money will be there, and asked us all to not rush to judgement.

But that's not very sexy, so I doubt the media will pick up on it.
