Ten random things: November 13

Ten churches photographed by Camilo José Vergara and currently on display at the National Building Museum as part of their exhibit Storefront Churches:

  1. St. Martin Morning Star Church, Gary, Ind.
  2. Moorish Science Temple of America #25, Detroit
  3. New Life in the Great I Am Church, Jersey City, N.J.
  4. Christ Temple House of Prayer Deliverance, New York
  5. Thank God for Jesus Church, Baltimore
  6. Tabernaculo de fe Iglesia de Dios in Cristo, Los Angeles
  7. Little Widow's Mite B.C. Church, Bronx, N.Y.
  8. Triumph, the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ, Los Angeles
  9. America Come Back to God Evangelistic Church, Brooklyn, N.Y.
  10. St. Matthew of the Highway Church of Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Camden, N.J.

I had a job interview in Silver Spring this morning, and once it was over I decided I may as well stop in D.C. on the way home and take in a museum. I opted for an exhibit I'd heard mentioned on a radio program I had recently listened to, House of Cars: Innovation and the Parking Garage, currently on view at the National Building Museum. Once at the museum, I saw a sign for another exhibit that sounded interesting, Storefront Churches: Photographs by Camilo José Vergara. And it was fascinating, not least because of the unique and colorful names often given to the kind of churches photographed by Vergara.
