SLIDELLó Leaders of the First Baptist Church of Slidell (sly-DEL') have a message of forgiveness for thieves who stole about $40,000 worth of property: "To Those Who Robbed Us, We Forgive You."
Pastor Bobby 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. Slidell is a small North Texas town of about 175 people, located 50 miles north of Fort Worth. Says he believes there are desperate people everywhere.
