Not Seen Often

I came across this little church outside of Kernersville, North Carolina this afternoon. Given the state of the Middle East these days, it's too bad there aren't more of these churches.

  1. Actually I seem to remember reading sometime in the last decade that 90% (?) of the Arabs in the US are not Muslim; they are here precisely for that reason.

  2. Ever been to Dearborn Mich? Not a rare sight here.

    Although the adjective "friendly" is quite odd, as if the other arabic churches are not friendly.

  3. @HGA: From what I've read, most of the Palestinian Christians have left the area over time. The Lebanese in this country have usually tended to be Christian. I know I went to school with a number in Greensboro.

    @PT: Forsyth and Guilford Counties in NC have always had a strong Quaker presence since the 1700s. Friendly is a common name but usually not seen on churches.

    The oddity of Friendly and Arabic is what caught my eye - not the fact that they were Christians.
