A Religious People

A couple of days ago, driving a 20 mile journey from Luray to Elktown (just to the west of the Shenandoah national park), we noticed rather a lot of churches.  This is a country road, going through small farming communities of just a few houses, but no shops or other amenities (apart from the Page County High School, which is out in the countryside).

Every mile or so there would be a church.  On our return trip down the same road, I thought I would count them.  I counted 21 on the 20 mile trip, not including the churches in Luray.  And the thing was, they were all different, and I mean ALL.  We saw Methodist, Evangelical Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Community, Church of the Redeeming Love of Christ, Church of God, Grace Church, Beahms Chapel, and more with names I can’t remember.
