AN ELECTRONIC piano keyboard was stolen from a Southwest Philadelphia church a few days ago, and church members are hoping the community can help them find it.
"We're a poor church, but when it comes to God's music, we try to do the best," the Rev. Paul "Earthquake" Moore, an associate minister of the New Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, at 70th Street and Woodland Avenue, said Sunday. He described the keyboard as "very expensive."
Moore, a well-known anti-violence activist, said his brother, Robert Moore, a maintenance man for the church, discovered the theft on Saturday. He believes that the keyboard, which was in the church sanctuary, was stolen Thursday or Friday. The thief or thieves broke through a basement "double-glass block window" to get inside, he said.
