An update on the item about Manor Del Mar which has been in the sidebar for the last couple of days: seventeen photos are now up for those wanting a nostalgic peek at how the building looks now, viewable as a slide-show.
Here's that original report.
Feel the need to trade up from the apartment to something more expansive? How about Manor Del Mar?
Can't you just see Six-Pack Gerry and various pretenders to the Herbal mantle rushing to outbid each other for a slice of the sacred campus.
What kind of moolah will you need for the mansion? You'll get it at a DIY cost of a mere 2.6 million. Chickenfeed if you've got a nice steady income from devoted tithe-slaves.
All joking aside, the PCG Prophet may indeed be interested in acquiring the property with his fetish for all things Herbal - after all, this is the bloke who hauled a rock back to Edmond because HWA allegedly prayed there. His latest effort to clone pre-Tkach WCG...
[I]n 2006, we completed a set of architectural drawings for a $15 million, 800-seat auditorium we intend to build and dedicate to God. I wrote at the end of Raising the Ruins that we hoped to break ground on God’s house sometime in 2007. Today, on the first Sunday in 2008, we did it. On a gorgeous spring-like day, with temperatures topping 70 degrees, about 500 people joined my father in a 45-minute ceremony kicking off this historic project. For an up-to-date view of the construction site, go here.

And who knows, maybe another potential buyer might be Don Billingsley, who seems flush with enough tithe income to buy up lots of advertising on the main page of Charlotte Online - www.charlotteonline.us - two ads in fact, one with the face of the Late Great Apostle prominently displayed.
But why Charlotte, which, if my poor knowledge of US geography is adequate, is quite some distance from Modesto? Surely Don isn't trying to poach members from Meredith's LCG and the Ritenbaugh Church of the Great God, both based in Charlotte?
No, perish the very thought.
