I was passing by this church recently and overheard what must have been a live band playing Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready”. I lingered for a while to listen.

I also looked up the organization’s website and found out that they provide community for people who need it.

Their sign is nothing like what you usually see on a church building. It’s also quite a contrast to the sleek condo signs in the vicinity.

These scrawled letters are unruly and untamed. At the same time they’re surrounded by brackets that contain them and embrace them.

    because of the lines in the wood and the sharp bend in the letter C i first read this sign as “sangtuary.”

    How apt, given that a lot of singing must go on there. Thanks for your observation!
