February 3rd, 2014 by

church theifIn an unusual follow-up to the story below, about the burglary of cars on a local church’s parking lot last Sunday night, apparently the theives felt remorse when they opened their collection,¬†finding a study Bible of one of the victims.

A stolen purse was found hanging on the church’s front door, Saturday afternoon, along with the study Bible and some personal items.

No ‘valuables” were returned.

  1. Reap what you sow! says:

    Well, maybe they do have a little respect and fear of The Almighty. Lesson learned: carry bible into service!

  2. Really says:

    Wow… Good job for bringing some of it back, but I think they should’ve thought before taking it! Instead of robbing church parking lots, how about walking into church and learning something?!
