Earlier on when the meditators first came to Fairfield there was a cult of 
personality big porkchop kind of guy who was the FSC minister quite full of 
himself. He'd hold court and pontificate (scapegoated) about the meditators to 
his followers. They got other people in charge now and seem to be a thriving

Her Foursquare Church still exists to this day and claims a membership of 8

 "She was a spellbinding speaker," says Sutton.
 These were no ordinary sermons - they were more like music hall performances. 
"She had the best actors, the best set designers, the best costumes, the best 
make-up artists and professional lighting," says Sutton. "She would create 
these stories, these dramas in which biblical stories would come to life." 

 "She knew how to use dramatic tricks to draw audiences, and so she turned out 
to be enormously popular. What made her most popular was her seeming ability to 
lay hands on the sick and to heal them."
