‘God’s Avenue’ has no more room at the inn

My place is bigger than your placeWashington D.C. is a cereal land – full of fruits, nuts and flakes. Yes, that includes some of the folk on Capitol Hill. This is a land known for politics and not for religion; however, locals calls a large strip of 16th Street in the nation’s capital, “God’s Avenue.”

This seven-mile stretch of land – that ironically leads directly to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – is home to more than 45 congregations that focus on God as creator of the universe… and wants to keep it that way.

It’s D.C., so the LDS empire wants to buck the trend. Typically, their ‘meeting houses’ all look the same, but in The District, they want to switch things up with a 105-foot tower spiraling in the air. 10-stories? I wonder if Joseph Smith could ever spell, “O-V-E-R-C-O-M-P-E-N-S-A-T-I-O-N.” IJS.
