Good morning, Netizens...


Reverend Robert H. Schuller, founder and former pastor of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, took to the pulpit with tears in his eyes, asking his parishioners for more money after the church filed for bankruptcy protection from $55 million dollar debt.


This week, the church filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which allows a business to keep operating while it tries to put its finances in order under court supervision. The church said that for the time being, “Hour of Power” will remain on the air and the Crystal Cathedral will continue operating as usual.


Begun by Schuller in the 1950's as a drive-in church, over the years the Crystal Cathedral has grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise with its glass exterior and the mega-church has endured changes throughout the years since.
