The Rev. C. William Nichols, 64, said it was a difficult decision to accept the job as acting president and general minister of the 1.1-million-member church, but he promised he would be more than a caretaker.

Thank you for Gordon's article. I am a part-time teacher at a local community college. I am limited to nine hours of teaching per week at any one college; if I had more class time, the college would be obliged to give me benefits. Heaven forbid! I am single and pay no rent because I live in my grandmother's house. Therefore, I am able to live on my teaching income as long as financial emergencies don't arise.
