To whomever took money and checks totaling about $350.00 out of my bag in the top level of the old tower, Thursday evening, this message is for you. First of all the money was not mine. It belongs to a bible study group for whom I am leading a retreat this weekend in Myrtle Beach SC. The checks are made out to the retreat and I have alerted those who wrote the checks to contact their banks and report the theft. The cash obviously cannot be recovered. Now, being the religious sort that I am, I do not look for revenge nor retribution. All I ask is that whomever took the money, if you still have it and have not discarded the checks, please send it back to me, anonymously, ASAP as we need the money this weekend to pay for our retreat. My mailing address is below. There will be no questions asked. You can send it back without a return address. You can even drop it the post office of a nearby town so the cancellation stamp does not reflect where you live. Theft does not only affect the person being victimized. In this case theft affected over a dozen people who now have to scramble to keep their money safe. It also affects these same people who have looked forward to a study retreat at the beach, celebrating the completion of 30 weeks of college level study. Sermon over. My address is Tim Burleson, 141 Bill Williamson Court, Lexington, SC 29073.
