Church Robbed - Forgiveness

SLIDELL, Texas (AP) — Leaders of a church in a small Texas town have a message of forgiveness for whoever stole about $40,000 worth of property.

WFAA-TV reports that a sign posted Monday outside First Baptist Church of Slidell (sly-DEL') said: "To Those Who Robbed Us, We Forgive You."

Pastor Bobby Cates says there are desperate people no matter where you live, including Slidell — a town of about 175 people, located 50 miles north of Fort Worth.

Cates last Friday found his church office ransacked and a laptop computer, other electronics and a sound system missing. A church van was stolen, but later recovered. The church has insurance to cover part of the losses.

There were no immediate arrests in the case.
