Really? How totally … awesome!!
The Times-Standard reported yesterday that little Bridgeville, sad Bridgeville, the tiny town everyone wants to buy but no one wants to own, has a possible new buyer called the Church of Creative Reinvention Uniting Spirituality and Technology.
According to the news report, “The church lists among its goals a ‘showcase of integrated platforms for sustainable living,’ a vision the church thinks can help solve the problems of those in the Sudan region of Africa, and one that is closely aligned with the Bridgeville community’s ideals.”
Unfortunately, the Church of CRUST is having a hard time uniting a $1.3 million real estate transaction with a down-payment—so it’s accepting donations to offset the costs.
The family of the 25-year-old most recent former owner who offed himself shortly after buying the place is said to favor the deal, but they’re still holding out for the cash, or a much better batch of grape Kool-Aid.
Think of the possibilities!! If these guys come to town, we could have battle of the cross-county cults! Finally someone could give those freaks at the Adidam Revelation on Patrick’s Point Drive in Trinidad a flipping run for their money.
What’s not to love??!
UPDATE: Church of CRUST leader Robert Morse himself stopped by the humble Mirror to share his thoughts with both of our readers. Meet your new neighbors here. Enjoy!!
Hello everyone!! so I know it does sound nutty, my friends and family secretly think its nutty as well im sure lol…
Let me introduce myself, my name is Robert A. Morse. I am the guy at the head of this organization which is allegedly “nuts” lol..no really… As we are no different than you, we, are merely sick and tired of being tired and well..sick..! as i have stated in other blogs; (http://www.topix.net/forum/source/
We are neither polygamists, scientologists, nor do we wish to deal in the much prolific “drug trade”..
Truely I do understand the concerns of the local community.. growing up myself in a small closely knit community, with a graduating class of 63, i do understand… as a senior our football team took nor-cal AAA championships…(ok here’s a little quid pro-quo.. class of ‘91*), that experience taught me that i could in fact HELP change the world…
A 10+year veteran of the Bay Area music scene I now value having the opportunity to see life from its many alternate perspectives.
Bridgeville is beautiful.. much like the town i grew up in a river runs through it… growing up a family of campers, hunters and fishermen, Somehow there in that beautiful little town, the simplicity of life was brilliantly renewed. As i stood on Sky’s back “look-out” porch(a bridgeville resident we had the pleasure of meeting during our last visit to Bridgeville..Hi Sky!!)..I knew I wanted to live there..
Our motivation… to prove, by improving the lives within Bridgeville and it’s surrounding community, that lives world wide can be improved as well…
Thank you all for posting your comments.. We look forward to the opportunity to meet and hear all of your concerns, hopes and dreams!!
