Bishop Daryl Harris was stunned to learn the city of Detroit was suing his church for $170,000 in back electricity payments. One reason he didn't understand why was that the church, Total Life Christian Ministries, is housed in space it rents from Matrix Human Services, which is responsible for paying the utilities. Another reason is that Matrix's energy provider is DTE Energy, not the city. The next day, the city cut off the water at his home. It turns out the city had made a mistake in both cases. The church it meant to sue is a different one with a similar name, and they found he was up to date on his water bill. But officials said he'll still have to pay $30 to have his water turned back on.
