One of the things I like about living in Kansas City is some of our religious quirkiness. While out and around recently I took these pictures to show what I mean.
This prayer booth is just outside the front door at Rivercity Community Church and right on the street, not far from where I live. I drive by it almost daily it seems. I have been their a few times and I have friends who attend there.
This is a big influential church in the Kansas City Area. The name comes from the fact that it is located in a development called the “Country Club Plaza.” In addition to Country Club Christian Church, there is also a Country Club Methodist Church and maybe a few others I am not aware of. Even though I know the reason for the name I still never quite get used to it. Every time I drive by, Peter Gabriel’s song “Big Time” starts playing in my head.
...And I will pray to a big god, as I kneel in the big church.
Big Time, I'm on my way I'm making it, big time, oh yes...
Finally, there is this interesting sign (To the right. I have blurred the phone number.) that you will find off I-70 as you are coming into Kansas City from the east near the Jackson Ave. exit.
I am told that this school graduates more PCUSA ministers than Princeton and Fuller combined. *grin* I have always thought that if I wanted to get a theological degree this would be the place to go. After all, surely they don’t care about material things like money.
