Church weighs in on text messaging


Those signs they post outside churches, the ones like movie marquees, are often clever, but usually they stick to messages about how you should be going to church. This one, which a couple of colleagues have been sending around on facebook, goes in a different direction:

I poked around the internet to find where the church is and found a couple of references to a Stonebridge Church of God with a Pastor Floyd Ingram in Ozark, Ala. But the message is something that’s been on minds across the country as distracted driving has become a major issue.

By the way, if you have any stories about people driving and talking or texting on their cell phones, let me know. We’re working on a story on the phenomenon.
