She writes: The other day, I went up to a local Christian bookstore and
saw a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly
sassy that day, because I had just come from a thrilling choir
performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting; so I bought the

grinning, and drove on through the intersection.
I noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before the
