Reverend Rick Lemberg, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Casa Grande, Arizona, describes himself as a “Presbyterian by earthquake.” He explains that his grandmother, a Baptist, moved the family from Iowa to California many years ago. A Presbyterian pastor visited her and invited her to come to the Presbyterian church. “I’m a Baptist and it will take an act of God to get me to change,” she replied. While they were chatting, an earthquake shook the home. Being from Iowa, she wasn’t sure what it was but when it was over, she told the pastor, “I’ll join.” Lemberg says he has no statistics on how many Presbyterians became Baptists after an earthquake, or vice versa.
