EDITOR'S ERROR - in 'Cal-Nev Churches Respond to Tongan Disaster'

November 07, 2009

There was an error by the editor, and not by the writer of the story, Becky Perry, in the first sentence of the story, "Cal-Nev Churches Respond to Tongan Disaster" (Nov. 4, 2009). There are TWO churches involved - Hilltop United Methodist Church of Seaside, California and Church of the Wayfarer in Carmel, California, rather than three, as the story was changed in the editing process to say.

I am fully aware of both these fine churches and was not thinking clearly when I made "Seaside" a third church instead of a location!

The story has been corrected to read as it was written by Becky Perry.

My apologies to Becky and our readers - and especially to Hilltop's pastors and congregation - for my error.
