THE LONGER A CHURCH NAME IS...

This one is a first for me...and I've read the names of lots of churches

Here's the church name on this sign: "The Utopian Society of Spiritual Research Second Zion Spiritual Temple." Wow! Wouldn't you like to get behind the meanings and stories and history behind each of those modifiers!

This church is in an urban neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio that I visited on Friday afternoon as part of a neighborhoods tour with an urban ministries conference I participated in.

It seems that the smaller the church, the longer its name. Or vice versa. I kinda like this name.

Is there any comparison, contrast or perspective relating to the N. T. Wright quote below?
