LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Return stolen church items

To the editor:

This is addressed to the person or persons who broke into our Christian Science church on South Whidbey recently and removed a number of items.

We sincerely believe that you are members of the Creator’s family – as we are. All individuals are known and loved by the infinite Father/Mother and have the inherent ability to think and act rightly — to express by their deeds their mutual love and respect.

Some of the items you removed from our church — the portrait of our founder, our membership ledger, and a number of historical church records — have no significant monetary value, but they do mean a good deal to our members, and we would appreciate their safe return. That would be an act of kindness.

These items could be left either outside our church during the week, or in a safe location identified with an anonymous telephone call to our church. The telephone number is available in any local telephone book or on the Internet. Thank you.

The Board of the Christian Science Church
