I just enjoyed a few rare daytime minutes alone with my husband (thanks Lauren!) out in Pasadena. As we were walking past the Fuller Seminary student parking lot, Doug made a comment about the collection of hulking SUV’s, the smattering of luxury vehicles, and the presence of lots of shiny, new, good-looking cars. (Are we the only ones who struggled financially to get through seminary???) We asked ourselves this question: should our parking lots be a witness? Should what we drive somehow speak to or represent what we believe about God and creation and the kingdom? Should Fuller’s parking lot, or those of our churches for that matter, look any different from the parking lots at Houston’s or The Paseo?
Or is what we drive “gospel neutral”?
