Robert Schuller

Paul Harvey, Signs of the Times, August 1987, p. 11

Recently Pastor Robert Schuller of Garden Grove, California, visited 14 cities in one week to promote one of his books. This in addition to other responsibilities which had to travel with him. Then his office advised that when he got home he was scheduled for a luncheon with the winner of a charity raffle. Raffle tickets had been auctioned off for a "lunch with Robert Schuller." He hurried home, prepared to squeeze the luncheon into his crowded schedule, then learned that one person had bid $500 to have lunch with him. Dr. Schuller was suddenly sobered. He happened to know that $500 represented that individual's entire savings. And the girl willing to bid her entire savings to have lunch with him was his own school-age daughter.
