An Ohio church sign is going viral for its tongue-in-cheek response to thieves who stole the building’s air conditioning unit: “Whoever stole our AC Unit: Keep it. It’s hot where you’re going.” Pastor Gus Brown of Akron Alliance Fellowship Church said the $3,500 dollar air conditioning unit was taken from the building just days after it was installed.
Pastor Brown said the church sign isn’t meant to be taken literally, and the church believes there is “room for reconciliation” if the thieves make amends for their crime.
“Staying on this path will only get you one place. And we don’t want you to go there. Our desire is to even see (the thieves) at our church one day,” Brown said.
