The Church of Stranger Things vs. FUN Company: Three months ago the CEO for FUN Company sent a letter to the Pastor for the Church of Stranger Things pledging a $3,000,000.00 donation to the Church. Upon receipt of this news, the Pastor contacted FUN’s CEO who re-assured the Pastor that the Church would be receiving a check for this amount within the ensuing four to six weeks. The Pastor, who for several years had wanted to expand the Church in order to increase its congregation, immediately hired an architect and paid him $400,000.00 to design the new ambitious project. The Pastor was in love with the architect’s design, so he quickly hired a general contractor for $750,000.00 to start the building process. In addition to the $750,000.00 for the labor, the Pastor paid another 1,100,000.00 for the tools and materials needed for the project. Five weeks after receiving the letter and first speaking to FUN’s CEO on the phone, the bishop called FUN because he was nervous about the fact that he had not received the check and he had already incurred such significant expenses. Note that the only reason the Pastor engaged in this ambitious construction project was because of the extra money he was counting on getting from FUN since the Church’s structure did not need it to continue its regular operations. The CEO at that point told the Pastor that soon after committing to donate the money, FUN’s finances started going terribly wrong and as such at this point, they were not able to make a donation to the church. The Pastor is now demanding that FUN still true to its word and give the church the donation.
