Driving Down Central Ave.


I think this might be called a store-front church, not meaning to put down this organization in any way, of course. It is on the left as you approach 24th St from downtown, just before the Mongolian Grill and Bob Smith's Lincoln Mercury place. I couldn't read the fine print as I drove past so I turned around and found the following information tacked up on the front door of the Toddler Escape, all deserted on a Sunday morning:

           Tuesday Bible Study 7-9pm

            Friday Sabbath 6-10pm

            Saturday Torah Study 2-4:30pm

When I looked up Lion of Judah, of course, I was reminded that the Jewish scriptural Judah was represented as a lion; and that the Lion of Judah in Christianity is Jesus; and that the Lion of Judah has some Ethiopian connections as well. There are a lot more entries in a Google search on Lion of Judah, sometimes part of an Assembly of God gathering and sometimes under the auspices of a Baptist Church. I couldn't find an exact replica of the picture included in their sign above but this outfit in Olympia WA might be close.

There is an animated movie coming out this summer with the same title.

Probably the easiest way to find out what is going on here would be to stop in on Friday evening, or Saturday afternoon, or Tuesday evening.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
