Something to ponder.
I saw this article recently and wanted to share with you.
Not being a huge fan of Las Vegas, I had never given much thought as to what the churches must deal with there...although now, I am guessing that their collection might be the easiest thing to deal with.
Anyway...had you heard of this?
Do Las Vegas churches accept gambling chips?
This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas but there are more Catholic churches than casinos.
Not surprisingly, some worshipers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.
Since they get chips from many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings.
The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.
This is done by the Chip Monks.
