Due to a couple of recent car crashes involving my personal vehicles I have been doing a lot of thinking about cars and purchasing cars. The big issue I had to confront recently was how to get a vehicle big enough for all my kids and the potential for extra riders. So I ended up with a 11 passenger Chevy Suburban. That got me thinking about what my fellow ward members drive to church on Sunday. You know… the family car. That is when it struck me that a large majority of the vehicles in our parking lot are mini-vans, suv’s, and other large vehicles.

So a couple of questions.

1. What personal automobiles do you drive? For the record we own a Suburban and a Chrysler Town and Country mini-van.

2. What kinds of cars do you see in your church parking lot?

3. What do the types of cars we tend to drive say about our community?
