I learned this from my brother Jim, who takes free brochures (and actually reads them!) that are in racks in restaurants, shops and motels. His kids razz him about trolling for free stuff.
This reminds me of Don and Naomi Cole, family friends, who put up a wooden sign-spotlighted-above their porch one Christmas: Jesus is Lord. It stayed up after other Christmas decorations were removed, because they couldn’t take it down in good conscience. When I was in Jr. High and High School, I often walked by their house; it was my “safe house” I could run to if I felt threatened.
A local restaurant, a Greek takeout called Yia Yia Nikki’s, has a sign above the door: GOD. What does it mean and why is it about the door? I must ask.
Architecture is an area I’d love to explore. It fascinates me how beliefs are reflected in stone, wood, glass and design. All building is informed by our beliefs and values.
