A former treasurer of a Manlius church who was also the financial head of a major charitable foundation has been indicted on charges of embezzling $444,000 from the church.

The ex-treasurer, Mary Meyer, and her husband, John Osborn, wiped out the endowment of the United Methodist Church of Manlius where they worshipped, according to church officials. Much of the money was from people who left it to the 150-year-old church in their wills.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
