A Collection Of A Different Kind, Thank God

Yep, my Dad was a minister in the Congregational Church, which makes me a PK (Preacher's Kid), or as some of the more erudite of you would say, a TO (Theologian's Offspring).  And yes, I walked up and down the aisle with a collection plate.

But not everyone is so tactful about it.

In this article, two guys walked into a church and shouted, "This is a robbery," proceeding to take an entirely different style of collection.  Flashing a handgun, they took women's purses.

Not willing to put up with the interlopers, the parishioners tackled the robbers, and they ended up capturing both crooks.

Even though I passed around the plate, I never got tackled in church.
