Hell...

One of our local churches is across the road from a soon to be opened Hell Pizza place... As i rode past it this morning on my way to the office I had a laugh to myself while many of our churches in the 21st century would never want to be anywhere close to Hell, it was CT Studd's (english cricketer and missionary) vision of what the Church should be:
"Some want to live within the sounf of Church and Chaple Bells,
I want to build a rescue shop within a yard of Hell."

Maybe they should put that on their church notice board...though strictly speaking they are about 20 yards away

Both Hell's Pizza and the local Baptist church sponsor the local football club the kids are part of. Makes for an interesting juxtaposition at times.

As does the local Hell's Pizza being next door to "Eve's Pantry". I can see some Church Fathers making all sorts of connections.

I noticed the local petrol station (20 yards the other way)has a big sign out advertising Heaven chocolate bars...

That's the church stuck between heaven and hell
