Creative Recycling

I am all for recycling. Not just cans and cardboard, but things in the house, too. Those pajamas I no longer wear--they are tucked away and I can't wait to use the fabric to make lingerie bags for when I travel. And the table that no longer worked in the office? Now it is a toy storage area in the family room.

So, with that in mind, let me bring you the most creative attempt at recycling I've ever seen.

Ladies and gentlemen: The Grace Baptist Church in Price, Utah, which once was none other than a 7-11.

You can still see it, can't you? I haven't ever been inside, but I would love to see what they've done to it. I still can't get over a c-store becoming a church. I marvel at it each time I am visiting my parents and finally had to snap a picture of it. It seems wrong to take a picture of a church just so I could show it to people and say, "Hey, look at this church, it used to be a 7-11." But I did it anyway. I'm not quite sure what that says about my personality.

And, to prove it really is a church, I took a picture of the sign:

Because really...who would believe a 7-11 could be transformed into a church?

I could believe it. IN Florida we had a strip club-turned church-turned used car lot...I wonder these days what it has turned into

I can believe it. In my hometown, they turned a Smitty's (old grocery store) into a church.
