and even if Jesus rose from the dead and he and all his disciples all drove their individual cars to Easter service, and even if they were running really late and even if the parking lot was really really full, they still would not have parked in the bike lane on Canyon road.
I would like to take some time on this Easter Sunday to congratulate the congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos for consistently displaying the worst collective driving of any group in town. It must be difficult to be more hazardous than the high school students, but you reaffirm your vehicular ineptitude every blessed Sunday.
I want to also point out that "God is My Copilot" is a metaphor and you actually have to actively drive your own car, not just rely on the will of the almighty and hearing the tires rub the curb to get around the curve in front of the movie theater. You may not be first in line for the post service latte at Starbucks, but the rest of the town will be grateful for your careful driving and ability to stay within the lane.
Finally if your co-congregants are half blind and well over seventy consider encouraging them to carpool with you to service. Its the neighborly thing to do.
