Pizza Delivery Man Tipped $700 in Publicity Stunt

This Ohio church’s random act of kindness snowballed into something huge.

CHR Comment: A similar event took place in October (see second link below) with Pastor Markle of Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington, OH. This more recent event was with Pastor Wright of Life Point Church in Mentor, OH. As noted earlier, these acts appear to be publicity stunts rather than simple acts of kindness. It is not yet clear whether the churches are related to one another or whether the Mentor church is borrowing the practice from the Pickerington church.

Church Tips Driver $1,000 for $5.99 Pizza

A Domino’s driver was left in tears when an Ohio church congregation tipped her more than $1,000 after she delivered a $5.99 pizza, according to local media.

CHR Comment: The congregation was studying generosity. One notes, however, that someone was video taping the exchange with the driver and somehow the story was delivered to local media. It looks more like a publicity stunt than a random act of kindness.

“But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:3-4)
