Churches Ad Hoc: A Divine Comedy

“The genesis of Churches ad hoc was the photograph I made of a cross that seemed to rise up out of a tree. The cross, located in a park overlooking Eugene, Oregon, created a controversy regarding the separation of church and state. Proponents of the cross called it a war memorial. Others saw it as a religious symbol. I titled the photograph ‘Propagation on the Mount’. ” Herman KriegerChurches Ad Hoc: A Divine ComedyH. Krieger)

Photographs of churches with witty captions… one of the best is a “One Way” sign pointing away from a church located at the intersection of “Church” and “State” streets. Some find these photos sacramental, others find them drily atheistic. (The photographer suggested this site in an e-mail to me.)
