We were driving home toward Abilene one evening and the sun was setting. And through the dusk I saw this big neon sign on a church. Jesus Saves.
I think many would find a big neon size blazing "Jesus Saves" on a church pretty tacky and garish.
But for some reason I just loved it. I loved it because it was tacky and garish. It looked like a sign that would show up on a church in a Flannery O'Connor story.
So I pulled the car over and got out. I took a couple of pictures. And one of them, this one, is my iPhone homescreen.
