Money where their mouths are

Most people talk a good game, and many eat a good game, but few put their money where their mouths are.

The exception, however, recently ruled at Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington, Ohio. After ordering some Domino’s pizza during a service, the congregation then tipped the delivery woman $1,000.

The Rev. Steve Markle invited her onstage to receive this generous offering.  He explained that the church believed in generosity, and had therefore wanted to present her with this gift.

This act was the culmination of a sermon series titled “I was Broke, Now I’m Not.”  One wag subsequently wrote:  Clearly, they’re hoping for the Domino effect!
