    . Announces Purchase of Crystal Cathedral Announces Purchase of Crystal Cathedral

    In an unprecedented move, it was announced today that has purchased the Crystal Cathedral for an undisclosed amount.  The purchase brings a strong presence to the Southern California area and helps alleviate many financial pressures of the cash-strapped cathedral.  The new church will be named

    As part of the agreement, (and to help ease the transition), pastor Craig Groeschel has agreed to wear a pastoral robe for the first six months of the transition; and to 'think positively' as he prepares and delivers his sermons.

    According to spokesperson Ima Lyiar, ownership will take effective immediately, and that Easter Sunday will feature a combination of both traditional Crystal Cathedral and contemporary worship.  Highlights will include Handel's Hallelujah Chorus performed by the worship band; A Steve Fee/Chris Tomlin duet (accompanied by the massive Crystal Cathedral pipe organ); and "Christ Arose" as performed by The Statler Brothers.

    Easter Services will begin at 9, 11, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10:15.

      A fitting post for the day! I especially like the spokesperson, Ima Lyiar. And talk about those service times. Wow! That covers all the time zones, doesn’t it.

      Have a wonderfully cautious, skeptical day!

      I was falling for it up until the wearing a pastoral robe part.  Then it hit me ...

      I think I’ll grab another coffee.

      This is hilarious!  I just had to comment, too, because I live in the <a href=“”>hometown /a> of the Statler Brothers, and it’s so random to hear their name dropped in such a random place!  God bless!

      This is even funnier when you stumble upon it for the first time and it’s August, not April.  That’ll really get you to fall for it (until of course you get to Craig Groeschel in a robe).  This was a good gag.
