Red-handed congregation comes clean
Comment Email Print
¬†Liverpool Anglican cathedral has been swamped with hotel ashtrays, dressing gowns and library books following a sermon by a visiting preacher who urged people to return stolen property. Evangelist J John, who travels about the country on licence from the Archbishop of Canterbury, dresses smartly and gives a lively performance which includes jokes, tricks and Bible passages. The Eighth Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Steal, is all about prospering with a clear conscience, he told Liverpudlians this week, advising everyone to turn over a new leaf by handing over anything, however small, that they had stolen. The 3,000-strong congregation brought video tapes, library books, NHS crutches and equipment, company pens, hotel towels and bath robes to a collection point at the cathedral after the services. There was also more than £400 in cash and several letters of confession. A cathedral spokesman said where possible, items would be returned to their owners. The remaining haul would be donated to charity.
