If you point out your church’s error, do you go to hell?

In a recent historical commentary — inviting churchgoers to an event at Appleton Farm — the long-dead Daniel Appleton was lauded for funding my church’s original construction in 1869.

All well and good. But the commentary went on to say this:

Although living in New York City, Appleton Farms was the family summer home and Ipswich benefited from Daniel’s civic-minded spirit.

Which is to say, Appleton Farms managed to be living in the Big Apple and serving as the summer home, all at the same time.
