OF God and Parking


OF God and Parking

The biggest problem that this neighborhood in Chesterfield, MO, has is that the local church wants to have more parking. To get it, it will relocate a street, turn an existing street into a cul de sac, and landscape the lot so locals will have a nice view.  Of course, the Local City Council calls the relationship between the church and its neighbors "Toxic".

Let’s see — First of all the church has bought some of the houses nearby (to be used for the parking area.) Second — they are going to make the street a cul de sac — most streets would kill for that. And third, they are a church, for crying out loud.

Their sin is that they are successful in the anti-sin business. They are growing. This is a good thing, people. OK, they may be a little noisy on Sunday AM and a couple of nights during the week when the basement is full of kids and moms eating cookies and learning to be good. 

I can think of worse things.  City Council did right in this case.
