The Rev. Robert Schuller's $40-million International Center for Possibility Thinking (May 17) is truly magnificent, as is his Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. However, I am appalled by his statement describing the 40 homeowners he ousted to make way for it. "Each of them knew I wanted their home, and none of them were immune to greed." No one should have to put a price on a house in which a family has been raised or a husband and wife have grown old together unless the owner wants to move.

The Crystal Cathedral has eliminated 37 jobs to make up for a "significant" shortfall in donations in recent months that church leaders blame on the economy's downturn. Six percent of the 600-member work force at the Garden Grove church and "Hour of Power" television show is being cut by layoffs and attrition, church officials said. "It's very painful, especially because we're releasing good people who we normally wouldn't consider releasing," Executive Pastor Glenn DeMaster said Monday.

"Most people might think that's not the logical place to look.

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller handed over the leadership of the Crystal Cathedral to his only son on Sunday, ending a half-century as pastor of a church he started in a drive-in movie theater in Orange County and built into a worldwide ministry. Schuller, 79, waited until the close of his New Year's Day sermon to announce that Robert A. Schuller would succeed him as senior pastor Jan. 22. He will also take over the popular "Hour of Power," a religious program broadcast around the world.

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller, whose television ministry has long been symbolized by Garden Grove's towering Crystal Cathedral, will unveil his latest monument this weekend: the $40-million International Center for Possibility Thinking, designed by Getty Center architect Richard Meier. It took 13 years and the sweat of 183,000 workers to build King Solomon's temple in Jerusalem.
