Va. Clergymen to Rappel High-Rise for a Cause
October 17, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Petersburg clergyman is going to great heights for a good cause.
The Progress-Index reports that pastor Paul T. Christian of the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer says he'll rappel from the top of a downtown Richmond high-rise on Friday to raise money for the Special Olympics.
Christian says a fellow clergyman challenged him to take the plunge, and he agreed. He joined a team called "Fools for Christ" that is raising funds for the Special Olympics.
The public is invited to join Christian's friends and family members who will witness his high-rise fundraiser.
Christian is scheduled to rappel down the Sun Trust building Friday afternoon.
