Time Is Running Out for the Crystal Cathedral

It was revealed today that the glass structured church, the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, is in financial trouble and is filing for bankruptcy.

Membership and donations had been declining since founder Dr.Robert Schuller retired and stepped down from the pulpit a few years ago. Before moving to Garden Grove, where, after humble beginnings, the Garden Grove Community Church was opened in 1955 in the Orange Drive-In Theater, which Schuller rented for $500. The Cathedral was completed in 1961 at a cost of $3,000,000 After he stepped down, some controversy arose, apparently some problem between Dr. Schuller's children. Debts are in the millions.

Executives from Windex have contacted the Schuller family, and indicated that they might be interested in purchasing the glass structure and utilizing it as a Research and Development center as well as a training facility for future window cleaners.

They indicated also that they had an interest in utilizing the offices for the training facility with future plans of establishing Windex University. Their plans involved converting the main sanctuary into a basketball court for a future university basketball team, the Windex Blues.

The Schullers indicated they were considering the offer.
