Tithing Increases to 11%
Explains an official church spokesman, "The worldwide recession has caused many of our church members to struggle financially. With basic costs of living rising, we wanted to provide a way for members to increase their blessings to compensate."
The increase will take place effective January 1st and a pamphlet answering questions about the new program is expected to be distributed to members before the end of the year.
The pamphlet explains that the increase to 11% should be considered by members to be a "tithe of a tithe", allowing members to double their blessings with only a small increase in actual expenses.
