Zen Tuesday: #8


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. But this is Zen Tuesday so the rules are even fewer and farther between.

Say what comes to mind. That's what we're here for today.

A ready made merchandising opportunity, just add a cross or whatever.

J+P said...

Price is a tad steeple.

lewi14 said...

It makes me sad to see the sold note for that wonderful church. Where are all the believers who could visit it?

peppermint said...

It seem to me that church building are being on sale.

frazgo said...

Redemption for sale inquire within.

Brenda's Arizona said...

I wonder if the pastor made a deal with the 'devil'?

Katie said...

I wonder how long into his career it took Patrick to get to list a church!

Randy Fuller said...

"Built in '50s but used only once a week since then."

mark said...

I have always wanted to live in a house with its own belltower.

mark-Aye said...

I wonder if this would do as a location shot for the re-make of ''Acrophobia''?

L Barlow, AIA said...

Stick 'em up!

Bellis said...

Want to start your own religion? Buy the building, and the followers will come.

Susan C said...

Church sells church building for church. Will he have to tithe 10% of his commission?

Petrea said...

I should just do this every day. You guys don't need me.

I always wanted to live in a building that wasn't meant to be a house. I wonder if you could do that here. It's in a residential area (Villa at Craig), not far from the freeway and convenient to In 'n Out Burger.

Clifford Beshers said...

J+P: oog. Just remember, you started it.

I want to buy it and host Pie Night there. The surest, most fulfilling road to piety.

Better yet, we could all chip in and open a pie shop named "Pie-Us."

Bellis said...

If you wanted to turn it into a house, you'd have to deconsecrate it first by stabling horses in it for a day or two.

Clifford Beshers said...

The architect must have lost all his fingers.

Ms M said...

Wonder what it will become?

Petrea said...

If it becomes Pie-Us, maybe it'll get raptured, horses and all.

But as is sometimes the case, Cliff has lost me with the fingers.

Clifford Beshers said...

Here's the church, here's the steeple...

:-D

J+P said...

That's a little Byzantine, Cliff.

(… waiting for it …)




(Hello? You all asleep?)

Tash said...

J+P soared to the loftiest heights. Good post, P.

VW: tomor
To more (of such) tomorrow.

Petrea said...

Merci, Tash.

J+P said...

OK, I'll drop the dime—it's less Byzantine than New England Traditional.


… what, is a rimshot sacrilege? (I thought this was the architect's convention …)

TheChieftess said...

In Vaneta Oregon there's an old church that was converted to a restaurant...they call it Our Daily Bread...(they did a tasteful job...and the food's quite good!)

Petrea said...

Chieftess, you reminded me of the church that's a house on Silverlake Blvd.

Clifford Beshers said...

No, I'm pretty certain it was Byzantine...

Dina said...

Is God included in the deal?
If I buy the church does it come with God inside?

TheChieftess said...

Dina...God comes inside, outside and all around the house, whether we buy it or not!!!

TheChieftess said...

Quite a coincidence that someone just sent me these pics of an old church in England converted to a home... thought you all might find it interesting...

Petrea said...

Chieftess, I love that. They even got the graveyard! And you really can't beat the bathroom.

Dina said...

Shalom The Chieftess. OK, good deal!
