Topping our news today…
The Board of Directors of Voice of Evangelism, the ministry of Perry Stone, has released a statement regarding the recent sabbatical of Perry Stone. In April, the Board of Directors placed Evangelist Perry Stone on sabbatical for rest and restoration. The decision was made for two reasons: First, over the past few years, Perry has encountered serious health issues related to spiritual and physical burnout. His blood pressure level indicated the potential for a dangerous stroke. This demanded rest and immediate medical attention. Secondly, a couple of employees at VOE requested to meet with the Board of Directors to address concerns of inappropriate words and actions.
Upon review, the board determined that the issues were civil in nature and not criminal, but that the behavior deviated from the biblical standards set in place for VOE leadership.
At the direction of the board, Perry stepped aside from all pulpit and travel ministry for an extended period of time. He has sincerely repented for any words or actions said or done that made anyone feel uncomfortable or brought them hurt in any manner.
The board has worked with Perry to set in place strong boundaries of accountability surrounding his future ministry speaking and travel schedules. They continue to evaluate the progress of his spiritual and physical health to determine future plans.

Tim Siniard reports: Cleveland Utilities will begin work on a $400,000 sewer rehabilitation project near the Blythe Oldfield neighborhood on Aug. 3.
According to Greg Clark, CU’s manager of wastewater collections, the rehab project will replace the existing 8-inch clay sewer pipe with 12- inch PVC pipe. In addition, unlike the existing system, Clark said the pipe will be placed on an elevated grade to improve water flow.
The project is part of CU’s SCOPE-10 initiative, the utility’s multi-year project to meet regulations set forth by the Clean Water Act, enacted in 1972 and amended over subsequent years.
The project’s pathway will begin at the corner of Ninth Street S.E and Cincinnati Avenue S.E., running down Ninth Street to Hardwick Street S.E., where it will cut across several private properties to Wildwood Avenue.
