In our locale, a fundamentalist Christian group has been meeting in rented space for a number of years, all the while growing in membership.
In 2005, the church spent $3 million to purchase land along one of the area's major highways. The church now believes it is ready to build its own facility. One of the church members, who just happens to be part of the construction company which has been hired to build the new church, says that it was "divine intervention [which] has led them to a permanent home."
So, I guess we can thank god for that.
But, you'd think the Lord would lead his people to property that was not located at the bottom of a huge and very stinky landfill!
