Televangelist Schuller out of hospital after fall

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) - Crystal Cathedral founder and former televangelist the Rev. Robert H. Schuller is out of the hospital after a fall at his Southern California home last month.

Schuller's daughter, Carol Schuller Milner, told The Associated Press on Thursday that her father needed physical therapy and was alert and walking.

The 86-year-old televangelist, who started the popular "Hour of Power" broadcast and built Orange County's glass-paned Crystal Cathedral, fell on July 20 at his home in Orange.

Schuller once attracted millions of viewers worldwide with his sermons broadcast from the Crystal Cathedral, but in later years his ministry suffered from a decline in viewership and donations.

Schuller resigned from the ministry's board in 2012, two years after the famed church filed for bankruptcy.
