On Tuesday, I had a visitor during my ideaLab office hours at Central Market.
It was Sue Diaz, spokeswoman for The Potter’s House, a 300-member Hispanic congregation that’s hoping to buy a historic church in downtown York.
She had corresponded with me earlier that day via the ydr.com Facebook page, where I had posted my location for the morning.
The church she represents is currently renting a facility but hopes to close on the at-one-time-condemned Trinity United Methodist Church by the end of July.
Once they close, she said, the congregation needs to raise $500,000 to repair the building’s roof.
The thing is, though, this isn’t really my beat.
I remembered my co-worker John Hilton had been following this story, so I passed the tip onto him.
He did the hard part of following up and was able to break news on his blog, Belief and Beyond.
