thoughts of a dying atheist.

Drive-Thru Religion of the Day: To accommodate parishioners who wish to partake in the rituals associated with Ash Wednesday but can’t spare the time to attend the full service, one church in the Cincinnati-adjacent city of Mount Healthy has decided to offer a “drive-thru” version later in the day.

“Some people are very busy, and some people get a little intimidated walking into a church, this is for them,” said Rev. Patricia Anderson Cook of the Mount Healthy United Methodist Church.

Rev. Cook will be distributing ashes and blessings to devout drivers who won’t be required to leave the comfort of their car.

Though no other church is extending a similar service, The Episcopal Church appearently sent out ministers to hand out “ashes to go” to commuters at train stations.

This is when I use the age-old cliché, practice what you preach.
