    Drive through churches?

    I watched the Pelosi documentary on evangelical christians last night. It was very eye opening. One thing that really struck me was the concept of the drive through church. I have not seen one around here just yet but I am sure that one will pop up soon. I guess you could say that I am in the buckle area of the bible belt. I guess if one came here, we would just view it as another drive through use and they would have to follow the same rules as a McDonalds or CVS.

    It just seems like a really strange concept to me. Do people really use them? Do any of you have them in your communities?

    Grand Rapids does not have a drive through church, but it does have a drive in church:

    Woodland Drive-In Church
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)
