Any other AO out there get the letter about Met. Philip's 40th anniversary celebration in Detroit?

Any one planning on giving to the Bishop's Purse?

The money to be used at his discretion.

Any thoughts?

I wouldn't.  While he has done some great things, he has at least two books written about him and a soccer stadium in Lebanon named after him.  The money could be used more for other, more directed projects.

Thank you Elisha, I did not know he had a soccer stadium named after him. I agree that the money is better spent elsewhere.
